Poured into a tulip glass

A: Golden amber with an off-white half-finger head that dissipates fast.

S: Grapefruit and piney hops

T: Excellent rush of piney hops. Smooth, not too bitter. Malts give it a great balance. Peaches and apricots slide right in. Semi-sweet. A dry finish.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: One of the better IPA's out there. This prickly little fish begs to be sipped and lapped and loved. Such an easy drinker. Buy more than one; you'll want more.
