Bottle from colonial Spirits
Pours a fairly clear deep golden color with a smallish off white head. Aromas of bready malt and spicy earthy hop. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Light bready malt base with a high level of spicy earthy hop and a moderate to high level of hop bitterness. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. One of the better session IPA/L whatevers. I'm still not a huge fan of high bitterness without much body but this was one of the better ones.
