This brew is a golden copper color sitting under a small white covering of foam. It has a nice spicy hop aroma.

The body is medium to light, just a tad thin for my liking. I will say, however, that as it warms, it picks up a whole lot of flavor (much more than I had anticipated). It is nicely hopped, but just not quite enough to live up to its name. It is still a pretty good brew.

Poured out a bright and clear golden yellow color and was topped with a small but rich white head of foam. There is a big citrus hop aroma, more noticable than the malt or grains. An intense and sharp astringent flavor overwhelms this beer, not the kind of bitterness that I’m looking for in an IPA, but not that bad. The smell and the look of this beer is better than it's taste.
