Solid and smooth ipa. Almost has a pomegranate flavor with a nice rich copper color. Even though there is lots of fruit flavor it is super drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden copper with a frothy white head. The aroma is great. Nutmeg, earthy, floral, vanilla, and mellow orange from the hops. I think crystal is an underrated hop, and a nice change of pace from the super fruity hops that are so popular right now. Really nice ipa.
