4.3/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured a cloudy golden color into a pint glass, with a clean, white, persistent head. Pleasant citrus and floral aromas carried over to the taste, which was primarily bitter hops and citrus. This is not a particularly complex IPA, and one that definitely falls on the dry side of the spectrum. That said, it is very drinkable and, given the reasonable ABV, one that is a nice break from some of the more overwrought beers in this style. I would recommend it as a good compromise IPA, and one that would work well as a session beer.
