The short's version...poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter

A: I would have liked a little more head on this beer and a little better retention. The beer is light amber in color and has a white ½ finger head.

S: There's not too much to the smell here. I get a little bit of kiwi and some other piney hops.

T: The guava in this beer actually comes through in the citrus hop taste better than I had expected it to. The bitterness at the finish of this beer is very nicely balanced and gives it a crisp clean finish.

M: Near perfect for this style. This beer sits on the tongue nicely and has a perfect viscosity. The beer also has a perfectly balanced aftertaste.

D: I thought this was a very easy drinking, good tasting IPA. I'm really glad it comes in 6 packs of 12 ounce bottles.
