Unfiltered messy, mucky looking browned pear gold hue with a good medium sized capping of light puffy foam sitiing on top that lasts. Patchy lacing with some spotty sheeting etches across the glass as its consumed.

Aroma is of fresh hay-like/grassy hoppyness, quite fresh and resinous with a nice quality of floral leafyness that brings in a bit of fresh orange peel and tangerine citrus.

Taste has a nice firmness of pungently set hoppyness that's a bit citric and a bit dry and leafy all layered together with a pretty nice complexity. Lightly bready sweet in the malt backbone that comes through in mostly the ending areas of its character as the hops stick about the cheeks with a touch of bittering dryness pinched with dull orange peel.

Body is a firm mediumishness with a good balance and smooth character that allows the hops to get a good hold without completely blowing the palate off the map.

A solid IPA from Magic Hat, quite sessionable too.
