Poured a purely clear amber body with a one finger bubbly white head. A pretty, though standard looking IPA. Scents of orange flesh and zest, lightly floral hops, light pine resin, a slight spiciness, which is odd for a West Coast IPA, yet pleasant, a hint of earthy, vegetal hops and a light malt presence. Overall impression of aroma is of a very orange-forward aroma that showcases what I believe are Amarillo hops. The light malt adds balance and makes the aroma quite pleasant. The other aromas are true to form and balanced. Not the most robust aroma, but it is pleasantly balanced and quite pleasant. The spiciness in the background is also a nice addition. Flavor begins lightly bitter with flavors of pale malt that is lightly sweet, with a medium-light pine resin flavor and moderate notes of orange flesh, floral hops and. Light grapefruit peel. Middle is slightly more bitter with notes of orange zest, grapefruit peel, a still present sweet pale malt backbone that balancing. Finish is moderately bitter with notes of orange zest, pine resin, a hint of alcohol, grapefruit peel, and a light malt backbone balancing. Aftertaste is grainy, bready and sweet malt, pine resin and indeterminate citrus peel. Overall impression of flavor is of a nicely done IPA that is relatively standard in its overall flavor profile, but is hoppy yet balanced enough to be quite pleasant to drink. Well done, but not amazing. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-light carbonation with a slick feel and resinous finish. Overall impression is of a nice IPA mouthfeel that is true to style and quite well done. Overall this is an alright IPA. It has a nice aroma and flavor, even if in most respects it is rather standard. It is pleasant, but there are better IPAs, though I do appreciate the orange forward flavor profile. Not bad, but not amongst the best.
