This was served at a good temperature and with a smallish, off white head that soon settled to a ring and some lace. Color is a clear gold amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, citrus, grass. Flavor is up front hop bitter, then some carbonic tang, malt, dry. Body & carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, long and bitter with a little alcohol warmth.

A bit of a hazy start upon pour. Great beer all the way through. Great hops with a touch of pine and great IPA flavor!

Pours a slightly cloudy copper hue with a very nice citrus/grape fruit dry hope aroma. The malt hits the taste buds first then a nice dry citrus finish. Overall this is a very nice American IPA i would have it again.

My sort of beer. Biggest complaint would be that it was only a 355ml bottle so I had to nurse it a bit more than I would have liked. Even though this is a hoppy beer it does not have that syrupy oiliness that can be prevalent in the hop monsters.
