Beer poured a nice golden color.While golden in color this beer was somewhat cloudy. It didn't affect the taste overall, just it's aesthetics.
Large bubbles laced the glass, with a beer that had virtually no head, but was adequately carbonted.
Taste is citrusy, with zest. It finished bitter with a certain lemonyness & a borderline harshness.
I couldn't quite make out the subtle harsh flavor, but it was definitely there, albeit subtle.
Medium bodied fairly easy drinking American style IPA. I can't say I would pay 6.99 again for this bottle when I can get some terrific examples of this beer right in the US. If I lived in Europe and this was available it would be another story. Regardless, give this brewery a try anyway.

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
