A- a somewhat cloudy beer. Just a nice golden-orange hue.

S- not a great smell, little bit of dankness and floral hops.

T- the taste is outstanding. Piney and floral hops for a big bitter punch, but really clears the palate afterwards. A little sweet malt thrown in. Not a harsh bitterness, just right.

M- good carbonation, not heavy and not light. Lacing sticks around forever. Could be a session beer and it could be an easy drinker because of the 7%. Very well rounded.

O- one of the best IPAs I have ever tasted. Definitely lives up to the hype. Would recommend.

The beer comes in a slightly clear golden honey orange.

The aroma has fresh hoppiness, lemon zest and citrus essence, big forest green, big floral, a slightly sweet breadiness.

The flavor follows of bright forest green trees, almost like air freshener. Then of sweet honey and floral notes of rose and lavender, a touch of a orange peel and grapefruit, a medium breadiness, and then onto a medium plus drying and slight pine bitterness finish.

The hops are not abrasive and the malt body is medium. A wonderfully clean and balanced beer. An “everyday” IPA.

(Had this next to Perpetual IPA, enjoyed that beer more for its complexity and fruity notes.)

Poured a Golden haze with a thin white head about a finger thick, but didn't last long.
Lemon citrus aroma, well balanced but strong hop smell.
Taste matches the aroma, all the way through consistent citrus.
No aftertaste. Great mouth feel.
Very good IPA, definitely one I can enjoy a few of.
