A- a clear, medium gold. About two fingers of creamy white head mostly dissipates, but a little bit lasts around the circumference, leaving significant lacing on the glass.

S- floral and resinous pine hops dominate

T-mostly piney hops, held up by a strong malt backbone

M- a little thinner than other DIPAs, but smooth on the palate.

O- a really good IPA, but not nearly as big as other DIPAs that are out now. But delicious and well made all the same.

reviewed from notes.
smells of soapy hops in aroma but that doesn't come out in flavor thankfully, golden clear in color with a little bit of a copperish tinge. kind of an odd but somewhat balanced flavor, this ipa doesn't really do much for me. not overly hoppy but some bitterness. booziness pretty well masked though, otherwise meh.
