The beer is a clear amber color with lots of carbonation bubbles. There was a mousse-like head that lasted for a long time. The beer had a nice aroma of mild alcohol, floral hops, slight fruit and citrus smells, and maybe a little spice. No noticeable malts. Lots of floral hop flavor and then flavors of citrus fruits. It has a nice sweetness and ends with a nice creamy feeling. The bitterness is not overwhelming and the beer isn't as dry as typical with this style of beer. Great IPA flavors but very smooth and refreshing at the same time.

Nice pungent hop aroma, light amber with foamy beige head. Sticky lacing coats the glass. Taste is sharp and tangy, hops, citrus, caramel. Relatively smooth despite the hops and high %ABV, easy drinker. Nice!
