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.
