look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy golden body with straw colored hues beneath the fluffy white head which dissolves to leave little lacing behind.

As advertised e aroma offers citrus,pine, and floral hop notes. All are fresh and clean with greater focus on the citrus sweetness and flower petals.

The flavor is similar with copious amounts of hops and plenty of variety including the floral, citrus, and pine notes previously mentioned with more focus on the citrus as it warms.

Medium n body with medium carbonation and a clean, crisp palate with a hop punch finish.

A great Aerican IPA with a nice variety of hops to entertain the senses.

look; golden, slight orange hue, thin head, nice lacing
smell; floral hops, sweet rolls, a little alcohol
taste; floral hops, grapefruit, lemon, grass, malt, full flavored, nicely balanced, doesn't taste even a little boozy, finishes as crisp and hoppy as it starts
feel; smooth with some bubbles, crisp, medium body
overall; a crisp, full flavored lawnmower ipa if you have a small lawn, very nice

I didnt detect any distinct aroma of a typical IPA. The grapefruit, pine , resin aroma just was not there.
My first taste and immediately I thought of a cream ale. Smooth, soft and creamy. Much like a French Cremant sparkling wine.
The taste was enjoyable and it had a distinct taste of fresh cut grass.
The aftertaste was a bit disappointing, very short finish. But it did have that nice dry finish which I love in IPAs

I found this IPA to be very pedestrian. Good, but not great, in all respects.
