    Presentation: Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into Pilsener Glass.

    Appearance: Pours a clear copper color with a decent foamy head that provides minimal lacing.

    Aroma: Some citrus and herbal hops over rising bread dough.

    Taste: Greeted by malt breadiness quickly followed with orange, juniper and a hint of pepper.

    Texture: Medium body and good carbonation.

    Drinkability: Decent mild IPA but won't be one I seek out. Came as part of a variety pack, but usually only available as a 22 ounce around here.

    • 4/5
    Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice frothy head that dissipates quickly.
    Aroma: Hops are front and center; citrus and a touch of fruit and spice.
    Taste: The bottle claims that the hops will have a "ruinous" effect on your palate, and although there is a lot of hop flavor I didn't find that it deadened my taste-buds. Lots of citrus, earthy, spicy and floral notes. The malt adds a fruited bread balance,
    Texture: Dry and crisp with warming effect of alcohol.
    Drinkability: I had this on my want list for some time and I am glad I tried it. I prefer the balance found in the Levitation Ale.
