This beer is gorgeous. Its amber in color and clear. About 1/2 inch head when I poured it. Smells like piney hops and caramel. It tastes amazing. A little bit of spicy hops up front but the malt flavor is what makes this beer good to me. Its a good balance of hops and malt. I'm pairing it with ham and navy beans and its a perfect combo.
Overall- I'm still a little new to IPAs and craft beer in general, but this is one of the best IPAs I have had. I think it would be a good for anyone new to the style.

Bottle poured into a tulip.

Poured dark amber with a small white head.

Very pleasant smell... orange blossoms

Taste is floral with notes of fruit

Roof of the mouth bitter, moderate carbonation

I will drink this beer again and again. I would suggest it with spicy food
