The beer pours golden clear with a thick head that doesn't dissipate. The smell is hoppy and fruity and the taste is hoppy fruity and dry. The feel is smooth and dry and overall it's a pretty good beer.

Bottle was obviously old. Undated but I could smell as soon as I opened it. Another good IPA wasted to age...

22 oz bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a small puffy layer. It is an orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Light tropical, citrus, herbal, and lemony hops followed by pale, biscuity, and toasted malts.

Taste: Nice and mellow hop flavor followed by balancing malt backbone with light bitterness and chewy notes in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, balanced, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, and slight chewy and bitterness notes.

Overall:

Less bitter, less orange than Cimmerian berserker pale ale. Crackery base. Piney. Good bit floral.
