Thanks to ppoitras for this one!!

Beer pours a crystal clear coppery/golden color....the clarity on this beer is otherworldly, really. Big foamy white head towers and threatens to spill over the edge of the glass, nice clumpy sheets of lacing left behind. Some citrus and pine notes on the nose. Citrusy flavors follow, with a bready quality to the flavors as well. Super-refreshing, some mild lingering bitterness, and great drinkability on this one. A nice session IPA.

Growler obtained from the cooler at Stein Hall.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1" off-white head over clear dark golden brew. Pillowy head dwindles sedately, with prevalent lacing. Aroma starts sweet, but has pervasive pine and citrus hops character. Taste mirrors the nose, with citrus coming out more and more towards the swallow. Mouthfeel is smooth, it all comes together nicely, with excellent drinkability. All around good brew.
