look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

Overall:
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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 5/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice rings of soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, apricot, floral, grass, herbal, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bright hop and malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange/lemon zest, orange rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, cracker, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice bright hop flavor balance with a light-moderate malt balance; with minimal cloying bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very good hoppy blonde ale. Good complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
