Pours dark amber, slightly hazy with 3 finger width foamy head. Head retention is good. Lacing is excellent. Deep citrus aroma with slight piney hoppiness. Nice malty taste, quickly followed by a piney hop burst, ending in a smooth citrus taste with a nice bitter aftertaste. Slightly soapy. This is a great IPA!!
