12 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big rocky white head that retains well and and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready malt and fruity, floral, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet bready caramel malt with a lot of citrus fruit and a slightly harsh resiny bitter finish that is a little ashy in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a decent fruity IPA that has a harsh bitterness like most of their IPAs I've had.

12 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a large white head that reduces leaving a thin blanket and nice foamy lace. Aroma is citrusy, sweetarts, orange rind. The taste is earthy hops up front, citrusy hops, orange and grapefruit, malt. The earthiness wanes after awhile, but is still noticeable, distracting. Not bad, but have had much better in the citrusy IPA category.
