Pale amber color, unfiltered, off-white head. Lots of pine and citrus hops in the smell. Taste is pretty bitter, with lemon and grapefruit citrus hops dominating. Light sweet malts, maybe a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, good carbonation, clean and somewhat astringent finish. Overall an excellent IPA.

I like bitter, and this didn't disappoint...nothing too crazy or exceptional, but solid, enjoyable, with a profile that suits me well.

pours a hazy bright copper with a 2 finger khaki head. nose is some crackers, light caramalt, resiny pine, more earthy/flowery hops and an edge of hard-to-identify citrus. Taste follows the nose but is amped up and more bitter, with a malty entry point and then really letting the earthy hops make things a bit more interesting. The citrus juiciness is secondary but always there and then there's some orange rind that lingers and dries out the mouthful. Though it brings a good degree of bitterness, its still a nice smooth and easy drinker...the carbonation is decent but it might be a little low, and sometimes feels a little more tea-like than is ideal for the style. All in all, pretty good...I'd definitely throw this in the mix if I saw it around on tap. Such a crowded field, I can't

L: Pours brilliant amber to light chestnut under a 1” off-white foam collar that produces prodigious lace. S: Earthy hops with light malts. T: Bold citrusy hops balance sweet malts and fruit with a fine bitter finish. F: Creamy, medium body to a little above, carbonation medium low O: A little sweet but very drinkable.
