Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.

Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.

Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol

Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.

Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.

Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
