Acquired via trade from Donkster46 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a bright amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, floral hops and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out with a burst of citrus and caramel sweetness. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid IPA to drink for a long time.
