Pours a cloudy lighter golden color. Has a thick white head. Aroma is of hops, soap, and some pine. Flavor has a nice grassy hop flavor, with some pine, earth, and spice. Leaves a citrus hop finish. This is definitely quenching my thirst.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a basic yellow golden color with a small white head. Aroma of grassy, resinous hops, citrus, pale malts, bread, and sugar. Flavor of herbal, grassy hops, pale malts, crackers, toast, and just a wee bit of citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a semi-sweet, malty mouthfeel with a bit of grassiness. Nice IPA but overrated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle at GABF. Pours an attractive golden orange with a stiff white head. Nose is really nice, fresh and bright citrusy hops, also some nice resiny notes. Some biscuity malts peek through as well. on tasting, really nice level of bitterness and dry hop flavor. Beer finishes dryly from the palate and just really serves as a hop delivery vehicle, in the greatest way. Really fantastic IPA.
