Beautiful golden orange color with a thick white head. Incredible floral aroma. Hops and citrus. One of the juiciest IPAs I have had, without being too bitter and without the sweetness of the malt backbone being too cloying. Grapefruit, tropical fruit. I even get some candied orange and extremely delicate caramel from the malt. Delicious. I could toss back a six pack and still want more.

Unmatched balance of malt supporting the hops. Great depth of flavors and aromatics which remain throughout length of taste and continuing with mouthful. Stands above all other APAs and never varies year after year.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass.

A: Pours a Medium orange/ amber with a 1 inch off-white head. Slight haze in the color with a few small bubbles rising to the top. Layer of foam remains.
S: Piney, deep floral notes. Perfumy with hints of wild berry.
T: Dank. A sharp hoppyness strikes your tongue right off the bat. Pungent earthiness. Hints of orange in the middle. The malts are overshadowed by the hops in my opinion. Slight aftertaste.
M: Medium feel. Hop oils stick around in your mouth a little longer than I would like.
O: A very good IPA. Generously hopped and full of flavor.
