Unfiltered. Hazy pale gold. Hope resin flavor comes on quick. Perfect carbonation. Goes down smooth with a crisp quick finish. Lingers pleasant hints of pine.

Color is a clear golden amber with a modest foam in the Affligem chalice. Floral scent and a light fruity flavor that reminds me of honeysuckle aroma.

Some resiny hops along with a sweet maltiness to start. Tangy and spritzy. Biscuity like a Pale Ale, but the expansive hop flavors take over. It's just not as bitter as many big hop brews. Piney and a little dank but there is a pleasant dry fruity and woody note. Pear skins and and an earthy finish. Plenty of bitterness for my taste.

This is a highly quaffable lighter stule of IPA. The milder, maltier finish adds to the drinkability but won't please acolytes of the bitter hop goddess. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen's Market in Mount Vernon.

It really hits you with hop aroma and flavors, which seem a blend of citrus and floral, there's some piney astringency in the finish, but not until you get a nice dose of maltiness in the middle.
