This beer pours clear and golden with a stout 2 finger ecru head.
The smell is mostly of hops, but has a good piney/floral aroma.
This beer is a good, well-rounded IPA with ample hops flavor, and some strong floral notes. The flavors of resin and flowers about with a nice hop-forward character that leaves the mouth a tad dry, but not overwhelmingly so. This is a great example of an IPA that uses enough hops to be bitter and dry AND give it a good hop characteristic without being too strong and un-sessionable.
The drinkability is key for this beer, as I could have myself a lot in one session and not feel bowled-over by it.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

4.39/5 rDev +3.5%

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
