12 oz bottle. Pours a deep gold with a huge long-lasting head of tightly packed white bubbles. Smells nice and hoppy. Very hop forward aroma. Taste is hoppy with a good malt backbone. Overall, a nice IPA for a winter evening.

L- dark amber for an IPA, standard opacity, standard short head that dissipates quickly
S- mild citrus, mild floral hops, tiny bit of dank herbs. Nothing out of the ordinary, smells like a solid IPA
T- smooth caramel malts, piney, hint of citrus. Finishes with a very nice bold hop bitterness. Good amount of hops in here, it's aromatic and bitter but not overpowering.
F - heavier body than the IPAs I've had recently, in a good way.

O- This things good. Well balanced IPA all around. Kind of a sleeper pick that flies under the radar around here. I'll be sure to pick this up again soon this winter.
