Pours a dark orange tannic rust, clear as could be. Smells great. The sweetness enhancesn the light floral character of the hops. I wish the World smelled just that way. Just on the nose alone, you know this one will be good. Tastes great! Terrific presence of the malt early, and then replaced by a nice and strong hop hit, all busy and everything, and sustain of the hops lasts at least five minutes. Great after-follow here, on the bitterness I mean. Wow. Mouthfeel is foamy-creamy and high and roiling but soft and not at all scrubbing. A terrific experience from front to back. More of this in my future, sure.

On draught!

Outstanding herbal IPA with a two finger head and amber body

Smells of hebal pine and aromatic resin

Tastes like grapefruits, apricots, booze, and a good hop bite at the finish!

Smooth mouthfeel

Moderate carbonation

Excellent beer! I plan on grabbing a sixer soon!
