Rated on 12-25-2015. (Bottle labeled enjoy by 01/24/16) The appearance of this IPA is a medium sized off-white head with a lengthy retention, golden transparent body, lively carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, light pine hops, flora, sweet, earthy, soapy, fruit, and caramel malt.. This beer’s flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, light pine hops, flora hops, grapefruit, caramel malt, and a semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable IPA with a good flavor and a lingering bitter aftertaste. This beer is worth trying and a beer I would partake in again.
