A: slight haze; copper colored; 1 finger ivory head that receded to a thin collar; nice lacing;

S: a little restrained; pine, with earthiness and a hint of floral in the background;

T: oddly, almost flavorless; a little earthy; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied' moderate carbonation;

O: easy drinking, which isn't much of a complement for an IPA;
