Aroma: nice citrus aroma is inviting and smells of resin. Pine and grapefruit.
Visuals: Fish motif isn’t my favorite, but they make great beer. A red and amber party in a tulip bulb. Brilliant with a long lasting thin white head. Lacing is remarkable and sticky.
Taste: Very well balanced in sweetness and bitterness. Lots of orange and lime notes. A bit sour, and a nice warm finish. Quiet and delicious. A very nice classic IPA.
Palate: Starts very smooth, quickly dries and puckers, a bit sour, with a terricloth finish that is mostly pine and citrus.
Overall: Delicious, affordable, and all the flavors that an IPA lover expects. No surprises, but no disappointments. I’ll have it again.
