Big Hops and bold finish. A bit fizzy and the hops linger a bit long after the initial taste.

Beautiful color and flvor, not as bitter as many craft IPAs which s probably why I enoy it, it still has enough of a malty finish to satisfy the traditional dark ale lover in me.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, darker for the style, almost copper colored with a foamy white head that dissipates leaving some lacing, clear

S: not much, green and grassy, slight grain

T: grapefruit bitterness up front fades to a piney finish, there's a little sweet malt in the middle for balance, peppery earthy hop flavors

M: medium to lighter bodied with lower carbonation

O: more akin to an English IPA
