Appearance - Poured aggressively, this hazy, bright orange brew produced a white, half finger width head that dissipating fairly quickly. Gives a decent amount of lacing with good stick.

Smell - Aroma consists mainly of orange with a subtle bread note.

Taste - Lots of citrus in this brew. Underlying bread character from start to finish, while highlighted by a sweet orange flavor that builds and shines brightly by mid-taste. Tails off near the finish, ending sweet with a mild orange pith bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with fair carbonation. Smooth and quaffable.

Overall - A simple, but flavorful brew. In a West Coast IPA world where grapefruit and pine hops dominate, this one takes a Midwest IPA approach with sweeter citrus flavors. Reminds me a bit of Bell's Two Hearted, though with not nearly the kind of complex malt backbone as the latter. This is a beer I'd definitely consider buying again, especially considering the price point.

Boring as far as IPAs go. Nose is muted and I don't get much of the citrusy, fruity goodness I usually get with IPAs. Taste is just... Bitter. There's not much fruit or pine in the hop profile. There is a pleasant malty sweetness under the hoppiness. Overall, I'd say this is a rather one-dimensional and mediocre IPA.
