A solid AIPA, in a tall boy can, no less. Pour was a deep amber with an agressive, tight head. More malt presence than average for the style, but no so much as to detract from the hops-centric nature of the beer. Hops were resinous with some bite up front, herbal and sharp. Malt almost stepped in too much in the middle, but reigned back and the hops carried through. Some sweetness rises toward the end with the malt.

Just a nice easy pour and a just a nice easy drink.
Light golden pour with a nice head. Hoppy nose but not that strong. It was full flavlored with a good amount of malt coming through.

Best thing I can say really is that it is such a easy and good drinking beer. Something I would do over and over

Wow! This is a fantastic, very drinkable IPA. I love this, and will make sure I always have some on hand.

Great grapefruit nose that I can smell from a foot away.

The taste matches the smell. Pretty citrusy hop forward with a pretty subtle malt backbone. Very little sweetness or taste of alcohol.

If you're a hophead interested in a session IPA, give it a try. Very impressive. I could drink this all night long.
