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.

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.
