Nice orange tinged see through beer with lots of carbonation bubbles and an off white head. Classic IPA sweet citrus and pine scent with a slight malt back. A bit less fruity than your 2017 IPA, this one has a good mix of hops and malt. The feel of this beer is pretty darn good. Smooth and creamy with lingering piney bitterness on the tongue.
