Bottled on 8/31/13 enjoyed 3/30/14

A- Rich copper in color and clear. A one finger head reduces quickly to leave a light halo.

S- Sweet malts, tropical fruity hops. Smells great!

T- Strong sweet bready malts come on first with a hoppy kick in the middle. A dry peppery hop aftertaste lingers on.

M- Lighter than medium bodied. Nothing crazy or unexpected. Goes down smooth.

O- A great tasting IPL. Easy to drink with a huge helping of hop bitterness.
