Serves to me on-tap in a pint glass, this beer draws a clear dark gold/copper color with a nice, white head that's about an inch thick when first poured that settles to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass along with a few spots here and a few spots of surface foam. Decent lacing. Aromas of slightly toasted, bready, caramel malt sweetness along with some some floral, piney hips. The taste is pretty much exactly the same, with slightly toasted, bready/biscuity caramel malt sweetness along with some piney, floral
Hop bitterness. Well balanced flavor wise. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth also, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean, slightly dry finish.

Enjoy this lighter IPA from Fat Heads. nice for warm days without the higher ABV from the other Fat Heads IPAs. Great flavor, color and aroma. Goes down easy and supports the metro parks in Cleveland.
