On tap at The Wetlands. Pours a beautifully clear golden color with a small white head into a Seamp Head snifter. Aroma is fresh hops, citrus zest. Flavor follows with a sweet honey taste along with a beautiful fresh hop flavor that is zesty, piney, and just right. Easy drinking and perfect carbonation. This might be the best beer they have made. Excellent single IPA. Very impressed.

Half finger head with excellent lacing on a hazy deep golden body. Aroma is strong and hoppy with mostly earthy and tropical fruit hop aromas, hint of floral character as well. Flavor follows nicely with tart citrus, wood, metallic and earthy notes on a mild pale malt background. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Its simple but so very good. It could be hoppier of course but still one if the better beers from this excellent brewer.
