Poured into a tulip glass. The beer pours clear golden with a thick white head that retreats slowly. Webbed lacing is left down the side of the glass in abundance as the head recedes. There are some visible streaming bubbles as well. There are aromas of sweet malt with some pine and citrus from the hops. The malt and citrus hop flavors tend to dominate up front. It's almost like a bit of orange and not so much grapefruit. It has some nice bready flavors from the malt and there's a touch of caramel. The hops yield a nice floral quality in the flavor and the back end bitterness helps bring some balance there. This is nicely done. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is slightly dry and crisp. The smoothness of this beer helps the drinkability in many ways. This is a very good beer and would be a fine gateway IPA for newbies to the style.
