Light golden straw color with a frothy white head that fades into a film. Decent amount of carbonation. Some lacing sticks to the glass.

Floral, pine, citrus and a peppery zing that sneaks in. It's quite potent as I smelled it about a foot away.

A bready doughi-ness in the beginning, pine and citrus fruit in the middle. As with the aroma, a peppery taste is evident towards the end mixing with dry bitter after taste.

Light body, medium to high carbonation, it leaves the mouth feeling dry, very easy going down.

This is a easy drinking IPA. This is a all around nice brew and should be enjoyed by hopheads.

A - Pours a very clear copper orange color with a solid finger off near white head, good retention, nice lacing. Really clean looking

S - Mostly citrus hops, some floral aromas as well. Plenty of grapefruit and a little caramel.

T - Bitter and citrusy up front, slightly dry at the finish. Simple but a great combination of citrus and bitter. A little bready at the dry finish as well..

M - Lighter bodied, pretty carbonated appropriate for the brew. Pretty drinkable, very refreshing.

O - Solid all around, a good affordable go to if you want something bitter/citrusy and very refreshing.
