  • Poured clear into a pint glass with more white, frothy, sticky foam than beer. Retention was outstanding with nice sticky spider web lacing throughout.

    Aroma is beautiful. Citrus (orange and lemon), slight pine, and wonderful floral hops with a kick of sweetness.

    Taste is sweet up front and then the hops has a hostile take over in a good way. Pine is the main culprit, more so than in the aroma. Floral and citrus hops mingle in and add to a cornucopia of great hop flavors. Pine bitter bite in the after taste but doesn't linger to strongly.

    Light carbonation and heavy end of light body. Very minor hop oil on my lips.

    When I brew an IPA, I hope that I can come close to well orchestrated combination of hops aromas and flavors. The bitterness at the end might be a little much for some but this is an outstanding beer overall. Go get some. Enjoy!
