Pours an orange-amber color in the tall chalice. Plenty of foam and even some lacing, though on the coarse side. Tang of carbonation on the tongue. Light body with some fragrant resiny notes and a sweet flowery aroma.

This is a pretty unpretentious hoppy brew. Some browned biscuit taste but quite a light malt flavor. Resiny with the grapefruit peel taste taking over the rest of the flavor profile. It's not anything complex or interesting, but it's an easy drinking IPA as long as you like it plenty bitter.

I know I bought this one several months ago, so it may not do the hops any justice, but it's a pleasant light and bitter brew. From the big swing-top jug purchased at Wine World and Spirits in north Seattle.
