Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters snifter.

A: Clear amber color. Aggressive pour leads to a thin 1 finger head that disappears quickly leaving not much of a ring but a few whispy swirls and some bubbles. Lacing is pretty consistent.

S: Subdued bot definitely full of hops. Citrusy hops hit home first followed by the wonderful grassy notes of said hops. Malt not really present in the nose.

T: Man, this is a really nicely balanced IPA with full hop flavors and a nice malt backbone that stands tall but stands back and lets the sweet citrus hops take over first again followed closely by the resiny goodness.

M: Very nice feel. Perfectly carbonated, crisp finish with plentiful bitterness.

O: A wonderful solid IPA. Easy drinker, solid stuff.
