A- Pours an orange/amber color and crystal clear. Small white head that fades quickly leaving much lacing.

S- Dank pineapple, citrus, pine. Yup..this is an IPA.

T- Piney hops, citrus. Some malt flavor in the background.

M- Smooth and clean. Medium body and carbonation. Alcohol barely detectable.

O- This is just a great/classic tasting IPA. Go get some!

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a golden yellow with a good 2 fingers worth of head that settles to a thin layer with great lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting a strong pine hops with a touch of malt and a little spice.

T: Well it is hops from start to finish.. Straight up pine hops upfront then a light malt and spice mid palette. The finish is right on par with a IPA.. bitter.

M: Lighter bodied than I was expecting.

O: I'm not a big IPA guy but this was not bad at all.... I love the smell, taste was not bad but the mouthfeel was a thinner than most of the IPA's I've had.
