Clear copper pour with thin white top. Heavy, pleasant aroma of citrus and resin. Flavors are bold, bitter, and slightly harsh aftertaste. Pretty solid offering, and worth trying.

Pours golden amber and hazy with a short head. Smells of floral - sweet citrus. Goes down bitter and somewhat bold. Strong, but drinkable. A solid IPA.
