12 oz. Bottle
Bottled: Dec 2016

Pours a pretty nice slightly cloudy dark golden orange color, very nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some pretty nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malt notes, pretty nice citrus notes. The taste is hoppy, slightly malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA.

Nice appearance, honey, amber look to it
Lite hops aroma, stale malts (if that's possible)
bitter is the first thing that hits with this one, little sweetness with the hops but super bitter to me
think a one and done on this for the time being.
