This is a more-than-solid IPA from the Mountain Sun peeps. It has bite, flavor and balance, without being over the top

Nice shiny orange/golden pour. Somewhat creamy foam, could be more sticky...but nonetheless, it looks 'lish

Aroma is hops forward, but with a solid malt base. Citrus and slight pine. Sweet malt under tone

Citrus and pine flavors, too, with a bit of melon. Pine clears these out and the subtle malt combines it all together. A solid dryness without too much bite.

Very nice ipa

On tap at Vine Street Pub, this was great! bright yellow orange color. The smell was glorious hops, citrus fruits, hint of pine, just great. the flavor was nice and bitter with more hoppiness but could not quite match the smell which was the best part. If Mountain Sun is smart they will make this a regular beer because this was a winner.

On tap at Vine Street; poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - a cloudy gold; thin white head that leaves a trace of lace.
Smell - bright citrus hops that prep you for a excellent drink!
Taste - an excellent and flavorful blend of citrus, pine and grass with just enough malt presence!
Feel - nice balance, but the nose suggests more hop bitterness.
Overall - definitely worth a try at a very hip joint!
