Large mug of this on draft at an area restaurant. Color was a hazy gold with a minimal white head, though retention was good considering the initial size. Smell and taste were both heavy with citrus and pine. Finishes dry with a lingering citrus note on the palate. Overall it's a pretty good IPA, definitely worth trying if you haven't already!
