A - Pours a really nice clear, light golden color with a wee bit of a copper tint. Nice finger of white frothy heady, superior lacing, decent retention. Really great looking brew.
S - Lots of floral hops, slightly grassy and citrusy as well. Somewhat earthy, nice mild caramel aromas as well. Smells crisp, pineapple and mango type citrus aroma. Doesn't smell like a palate wrecker but several enticing aromas going on in here.
T - A nice floral hop kick initially, but not overpowering. "Wet hopped" is fitting because it does not have the standard dry lingering effect per the usual(which I quite like). Resinous floral hops some grapefruit/pineapple flavors. Really nice floral spiced/citrus burst up front, sweet caramel settles and the bitter aftertaste is very mild and doesn't hang around for long.
M - Light bodied, super refreshing and drinkable. Appropriate carbonation, absolutely fantastic.
O - I would consider this the perfect "light" IPA. Super refreshing, easy to drink, fantastic flavor profile.
