Pours a clear amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of spicy hops, sweet malt, tea, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of grass. Fits the style of an English IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of spicy hops, sweet malt, tea, hint of caramel malt, slight citrus, hint of alcohol, and a hint of grass. Overall, good appearance and blend, decent body, blend, and aroma.

I think the agave makes it not that clear, very smooth beer with a not too citrusy smell common of IPAs.
