A smooth pour easily achieves two fingers of yellow tan head. Head is mountainess and rocky as it slowly fades. Spots of lace are left behind. Body is nicely dark murky amber haze. Really a fuzzy mahogany hue.

Nose is sappy and full of woody hops. Spicy characters are very present throughout this very fragrant brew. A bit of rawness lingers on the nose as well.

I am immediately taken by how initially silky the hop profile is on this beer with first sip. Clean yet full on the palate is a very neat trick. Easy drinking but nicely aggressive hop feel throughout the flavor profile. Hops are raw and remind me of arugula a bit. Crisp and raw with subtle but consistent bitterness especially on the back half.

This is an overall solid and incredibly drinkable IPA. Mouthfeel is very enjoyable.
