12 ounce bottle courtesy of Sparky27. Thanks! Pours a hazy caramel color with a medium frothy head. Nice sticky lacing and decent head retention. Aroma is bitter resiny hops with sweet malty notes to balance. Taste is very similar. Slightly bitter resiny and citrus hops with caramel malts and bit of nuttiness. Smooth, medium bodied and well balanced. This is an excellent IPA.
