Slightly hazy orange-gold body, topped by four fingers of snow white bubbles of all sizes. Thick lacing.
Big citrus aroma, plenty of orange among a host of other fruits.
Strong sturdy semi-sweet malt foundation. Big burst of juicy fruits. Orange, maybe some mango. Sudden bitter snap at the swallow. Fruity finish.
Smooth medium mouthfeel.
A very nicely done IPA, with a quick distribution to PA, adding some extra freshness.

Pours a golden color with lots of yeasty particles floating about. The head is short and dense and settles into a light cap. Some soapy lacing. Not sure why there is yeasty floaters in an IPA.
The aroma is of a lightly bready malt with a hint of caramel. Light honey sweetness. The hops are herbal with notes of citrus and pine. Some metallic notes.
The taste is of a metallic bready malt, quite English like. There is a general fruitiness to the malt as well. The hops are steely, peppery and grassy; perhaps faded. I want to say some unripe apricot. A bready, bitter IPA/APA.
The feel is moderate with softish carbonation. Slightly sweet on the palate but finishes with a dry, astringent bitterness. Quite asprin like.
An meh IPA. Too dry for my liking. Hops are blah.
