Top notch IPA. Exceptional smooth weather on draft or from a bomber. Very drinkable IPA. Pine and citrus flavors with just the right amount of bitterness.

Pours a slightly hazy standard amber in color with a lightly tanned 2 inch thick head. lacing is present, but not plentiful.

Earthy aromas of fresh cut grass are noticeable first, balanced with tropical fruit of mango and orange.

Very fruit forward with mango and oranges. Finishes with both a caramel sweetness and a piney bitterness. Well balanced.

Creamy and dry with a medium body. Low to medium carbonation.

Excellent ipa. Hoppy and yet still balanced. I'm very happy with all the diffrent hop flavors in this. Piney, citrus, and fruit flavors and aromas. Overall a very good representation of a west coast ipa.
