A - Mildly cloudy. Golden yellow. Beautiful small bubbles. Very little pure white head that lingers extra long
S – fresh, hay type smell, like a farmhouse. The smell hides the bitterness within.
T – Great at first. Clean, soft, nicely bitter. I REALLY like whatever blend of hops is used here. Thin, and to my taste, a bit light on flavor. Very one dimensional. It has, in my mind, a poor aftertaste. Reminiscent of a strong barley wine, where the bitter gets thicker and builds rather than dissipate.
M – thick fluid, for a yellow beer. But still refreshing. Thicker than just a thirst quencher, with a very long finish.
I didn't know this was an IPA when I bought it. Got a six pack on sale for 8.99. I expected a soft summer ale. Boy was I surprised. It’s a great example of American IPA. Not my favorite style, but I appreciate how clean it is. It’s bitter without being overpowering. It’s thirst quenching without being watery.
It’s a top quality product, though it’s not my personal preference.

A: Hazy gold - about like a shandy. Little head and lacing retention.
S: Light floral hops and small amounts of citrus. Not a lot here.
T: lightly hopped for an IPA but still a hop presence. This is really more more of a wheat beer with a few more hops. Not bad but not sure where they were going.
M: about what I expected. Medium body and very fresh for a summer day
Serving type: on-tap
