Pours a clear, copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight floral hops, hint of pine, sweet malt, and caramel malt. Fits the style of an American India Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of caramel malt, strong earthy malt, slight sweet malt, hint of biscuit, citrus hops, and slight floral hops. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and body. Smells very similar to Lagunitas IPA.
