Transparent, golden, copper color. Cloudy, billowing head right off the pour. Retreats to a solid half-finger layer of froth that maintains for the entire drink. Coats half the glass in gorgeous, delicate lacing.

Malty whole wheat and rye bread aroma. Spicy with pine, herbs and grass.

Solid bready, biscuity malt with just a hint of caramel sweetness. Hop dominate from middle to end with a pungent grapefruit, pine and detergent bitterness. Good balance for an IPA.

Sturdy medium bodied. Plenty of carbonation. Somewhat grainy texture. Dry finish.

Solid IPA. Complex and well-balanced.
