Draught at the Yokohama GJBF 2012. Nice deep gold. Great hoppy nose, lots of Nelson maybe, a bit of catpiss, but lots of grass and citrus. Sweet flavor, smooth, lots of great hops.

a fresh bag of pnw hops are opening in the nose.Very heady. Light body, dry uber balanced. Superbly executed. Very good. Just what an ipa should be.
