Poured into glass from 22 oz bottle. Cloudy amber colour with a slight off white head. Mellow aroma. Taste lightly hoppy with a malt undertaste and slight grass due to the hops. Goes down smooth. Prost!

Pours a milky golden color actually very nice cloudiness with good foam and lacing. Smells great, very pronounced hops smell with citrus and floral notes. Taste is very good, nice hops hit and bite with a smooth citrus floral mix to mellow this beer out. The finish is very nice with minimal dryness. Overall a nice hoppy beer, would drink again!

A decent IPA, however this brew reeks of chocolate and caramel malts. Perhaps of decent gravity, this brew is largely stale, heavy, and unremarkable. This brew is a balanced ale, and maybe reliable, but nothing special.
