A-Very clear gold color with a white head that leaves a lace
S-Pine,kinda grass like, grapefruit, and other citrus aromas
T-I got the grapefruit first then the pine hop aftertaste that had a hop punch that mellowed out as the glass went down
M- high carbonation, creamy, with a medium body
O-I just liked this beer. The taste was just what I like in an IPA, wish I had picked up a 6 pack
