Pours a hazy light to medium yellow with a decent fizzy white head that settles a bit and leaves pillowy foam atop the brew and not much in the way of lacing on the glass.

Bitter hop aroma with plenty of sticky pine and light grapefruit along with a touch of light coppery malt note. Just a slight hint of orange citrus.

Very hop forward with plenty of fruity hops up front with light notes of apple and berry followed by a nice bitterness with plenty of pine and a light grapefruit and lemon with a bit of orange zest. Light malty body balances things fairly well with a bit of medium caramel and a touch of biscuity malt. Plenty bitter at the end.

Must more of a West-coast IPA than an English IPA even if it makes use of European hops. Nice and drinkable while it strips your tongue after a couple glasses.
