12 oz bottle poured into a tulip

A- A slight haze on a brilliant orange. A slight white head.

S- A dank and resinous hop bomb. A load of citrus and a perfectly balanced sweet malt. Really nice stuff.

T- A sharp citrus at first. A bold orange and lemon flavor. I get a lot of onion and spicy herbal notes as well. More on the bitter side then sweet. A hop focused flavor profile but an overall balanced beer.

M- Kind of bitter but easy drinking.

O- A very solid IPA with a bold hop flavor.

Excellent looking, rich orange color. Smell is fruity, a bit orangy.

Taste is very citrusy with a bitter and dry finish.

Not an over the top IPA but very very solid. I really love the citrus notes in this one. Orange and lemon with a grapefruit type finish. Very solid and refreshing IPA. A regular for me.
