On draft into a pint glass. Decent head and very nice lacing, all the way to the end of the pint. Clear yellow color. Lemony peppery taste with nice hoppy after taste. Not a bad IPA.

I enjoyed this beer. Does have a malt forward flavor. Does need more hops. Would buy again, but will not be a regular.
