Amber color with a thick one finger head with good retention and strong laces.
Citrusy and fresh aroma with notes of oranges, grapefruit, lemon grass and resin. Light, but pleasant enough.
Hoppy flavor with notes of caramel and bread malt sweetness, grapefruit, spices, resin, orange marmalade, soap, lemon peel and apricot. Quite dry aftertaste with a refreshing bitter citrusy.
Light towards medium body with perfect carbonation. Alcohol of 7% abv is well disguised.
Solid citrusy American IPA, balanced a bit towards malt and not harsh.

Another great testament to Marin's ability to balance a variety of hops. Felt more like an imperial but with some extra caramel notes to balance it. Think racer 5 or Green Flash. Super delicious, but only for real IPA fans.
