This IPA pours an amber / orange color with a thick white head. The aroma is of fruity and floral hops along with a touch of sweet malt and nut. The flavor starts appropriately bitter with fruity and citrus hop notes. The malt does not get in the way of the hops and comes through with a hint of caramel and nut. It is a rock solid IPA that is notched above the standard Cascade fest (if you know what I mead).
