12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pint glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a transparent copper golden color with a thin half finger, white head. Pretty generic.

S - Fresh spicy and floral hops dominate. Caramel and candies sugar show too. Smells very well balanced and quite inviting. The freshness if the beer is evident

T - the balance in this beer is phenomenal. It's not an ibu quest like most; rather a balanced, fair attempt at the style. The floral perfumy hops blend with the crystal malt nicely. Property spice is evident as well. It's not ground breaking, but I appreciate it nonetheless.

M - light bodied, crisp and dry. Pretty good.

D - a pretty good beer overall. I'd have it again.

I have had this beer probably so many times it is probably second to only NG Moon Man.

Pours a nice need Gold almost orange in color, very clear about a finger of a nice tight head.

Smell is all over the place with hops, fruity, piney and floral.

Taste is great, big piney resiny hops. A lot of fruit comes to the font with lemon, orange, grapefruit and a slight malt backbone to balance it out.

Mouthfeel has a decent amount of carbonation that really fills it out nicely and makes it a full bodied nice drinkin IPA.

Great IPA, and at a price that will blow your mind, 13.39/12
