Pours a mild copper color with less than one finger of fluffy white head with good retention.

The scent is of citrus and floral hops, some notes toasted malt.

The taste is first of citrus, mildly bitter floral hops, and some notes of toasted malt.

Medium body, very crisp and smooth, high carbonation.

This was an above average IPA, there was good balanced flavor, though it was a little light.

Beer pours a golden color with a little bit of haze from the hops. For an IPA it is fairly brilliant and a nice lacy head forms on the sides of the glass as you drink this one down.

The aroma is a hop bomb. mostly floral and citrus aromas with some grapefruit in the background. It is very well presented and blends together nicely.

The beer starts off crisp with cool and finishes with a little bit kick. It is not lip puckering or overwhelming but instead solid and balanced.

The body is medium.

Overall a solid IPA. It is an IPA that I could have a couple of in a row as it is more on the refreshing side than the kick you in the face side.

My favorite beer overall. A relatively hoppy beer, and definately not for everyone, but if you like hops, you will love this beer.

Living in the east it is fairly hard to come by. Lately I have only been able to find it in cans at Table & Vine in West Springfield, MA
