Clear, coppery golden with moderate white head and lacing.
Fairly lightly hoped nose for an IPA with only mild resin and citrus aromas. Green apple skin with faint chocolate powder and struck matches.
Bitter sweet, lightly resinous and grapefruit zesty palate which sits on the more approachable side of IPAs.
Long, bitter finish with slight metallic note.
