Poured from a bottle into a tulip. Pours cloudy orange yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells of citrus hops, not as strong as expected. Tastes of citrus hops with piney notes. Beer is medium bodied yet still easy drinking, almost dangerously so for the ABV, but still just enough sipper. Beer has good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.

From a bottle, not too bitter or distinctly hoppy for a big IPA. Balanced comes to mind.

Quick: Look is clear gold with a nice thumb of head. Some decent lacing as well. Smell is floral, with traces of pine and citrus floating in as well. Surprised at how mild the nose is. Taste brings the hops a little more forward, but the malts are there. Nice bitter finish. The feel is medium with medium carbonation.

A nice double IPA. I wish the bottle I had was a little fresher, but that is only a minor complaint.
