this was a nice cloudy gold with a tinge of orange. creamy white head and lacing. nose was floral, along with lemony citrus, fresh bread, pine and honey. taste was sweet doughy malts with a prominent but smooth and lingering hop bitterness quickly taking over. crisp citric bite and a dry finish. light to medium in body with a spritzy, prickly mouthfeel. fresh and clean overall and you can have a few of these.
revisited this and was pleasantly surprised. huge, dense, rocky head that persists. golden yellow in color. the use of the paler malts in this really allows it to show off the fresh hops. wonderful aromas of honeyed, bready, flowery citrus, with the lemony and orangey citrus standing out. frothy in the mouth- just a bit of bready malts and a wonderfully smooth hop bitterness; balanced towards the latter. very well carbonated which gives it a crisp, lively mouthfeel, leaving me to want to drink this way faster than i should. very drinkable, i'd have someone unfamiliar with ipa's give this a shot.
