A - A light orange with highlights of soft gold and yellow; a thin white head that stays almost permanently throughout the glass; bubbles rise from bottom to head throughout the whole experience. This is a wonderful looking beer.

S - Medium hoppiness; lemon zest; lemon grass; sweet pine; light malt

T - Hoppy, piney, and citrusy on the palate; malts assuage the bitterness of the overall effect of the hops. The aftertaste is hoppy, yet subdued because of the malt. This is a fine IPA.

M - I think the carbonation is just right on this beer

O - I've grown to love this beer over the last year or so--this is definitely one of my go-to beers.
