Pours a golden orange with very little head and moderate lacing.

Smells like hops, but a fairly mild scent.

Tastes like piney hops and some grapefruit, and is balanced out nicely with toasted and grainy malts, although the bold hops clearly dominate in flavor. It's not an overly powerful IPA, and goes down very smooth.

A very solid IPA overall. One of my favorite summertime IPAs because it goes down so smoothly, but still perfectly acceptable in the winter as well.

Light brown hued with a quarter inch head of beige foam with vibrant carbonation bubbles. Brussels lacing. Aroma of pine like hops is prevalent. The pine like hop bite is very strong on the front of the palate. The backbone is of light malt and then I get a rush of pine like hops on the fade. The mouth is fairly dry and refreshing.
