A beautiful, crisp clear orange gold color with decent lacing left after the moderate head falls. The nose is mildly hoppy, not particularly overpowering, with soft pine resin and citrus balanced by notes of roasted malt. The mouth is full and highly carbonated, with more hop bitterness appearing on the palate than what was anticipated after nosing. The finish is long and mildly astringent with intense woody notes. Overall, a well-balanced IPA with a solid structure and a clean finish.
