"A wonderful balance of hops and malt, this IPA is loaded with four hop varieties. You can expect a slight sweetness with toasted notes, a wonderful floral aroma and crisp citrus finish. Its as bitter as a MAD MANATEE!"

Poured from a 12oz can into a hotel high ball glass. Pours cloudy and is an orangeish good sort of color, with caramel highlights, a one finger sized head, and a nice dose of lacing.

Aroma was okay but nothing too grande. More malt than hops, toasty and bready with the requisite caramel undertones. The hops do lend a floral aroma as well as a slight earthiness.

Decent flavor. It is balanced. Malts and hops play with each other nicely. Slightly sweet. Hop flavor is slightly citrusy and the bitterness isn't overpowering. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery, however. This one isn't blowing anyone out of the water but it is a decent beer. Kind of a pale ale masquerading as an IPA, Or is it the other way around? I like that it is local.

Serving type: can
