Appearance - slightly hazed orange amber, came with a finger of off-white head, leaves nice lace rings after each sip.

Smell - really nice nose of citrus and tropical flavors, hint of breast malt, and some nice caramels.

Taste - big citrus flavors of orange, tangelo and ruby red grapefruit, great floral hop flavors accompany this, as the sip progresses the floral hops get a touch grainy along with dried citrus piths.

Mouthfeel - almost medium with such big bold flavors, carb is lighter side if medium and provides a creamy smoothness across the tongue, and some welcome bright edges along the sides.

Overall - absolutely one of the most delicious and flavorful ipa's I've had with this abv - I will order this one every time I go to the RAM, a must try!
