Pours a clear straw with over two fluffy fingers of head that retained for a long period of time and left decent lacing behind. This baby is one live beer!

The nose is very hoppy for the style. The hop bitterness is evident in the flavor as well, but it does not taste as potent as the nose would indicate. The taste is lighter and dryer than most high-level APAs; this is more akin to the sub-style generally known as a “session” IPA than a classic APA. I’d definitely prefer to drink this in the baking heat of the summer than in the waning days of winter.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a bottle. Look is bright copper with a white head and sticky lacing. Smell is citrus, pear blossom and yeast with some bread malt aromas. Taste is orange and yeast with cracker malt flavors. Feel is medium in body with a smooth creamy finish.
