A big thank you to Jayli for this one.

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, clear, tan in color, high carbonation

Smell: big dose of pine hops, some citrus hops and toasted malt

Taste: sweet caramel and toasted malt in the beginning, spices and pine hops in the middle through the end. A touch of toffee shows itself at the end as well.

Mouthfeel: medium/light bodied, high carbonation, slightly sweet start with a moderately bitter middle and a less bitter end

Drinkability: A very good and nicely blended IPA that has hops but is not a hop bomb. The alcohol is well hidden. I could have two or three. I wish this was available down here.
