Amazing beer, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try a "softer IPA".

It's got amazing taste, and an amazing mouthfeel. It doesn't have a stong feel, and goes down amazing. It's like drinking water from a greek goddess.

Just simply amazing.

Akira, The Corrections, Miracleman, Crack Pie, Illmatic, Gran Turismo 2 -- sometimes it's genuinely pleasant when something actually deserves to sit atop the swirling kinto-un of acclaim and breathless pronunciations that it seems eternally attached to.

Served from a tap into a pint glass

Poured a cloudy copper with a thin head leaving a rim of white bubbles. The nose is mostly grapefruit with a pine smell and some crackery malt in the background. Right away when tasting you get pine, grapefruit, orange, and mango with moderate bitterness. This is balanced out by biscuity malt for a pleasant crisp finish.

Medium body and medium carbonation.

First time I've had this one. Overall impressionist that this is a very nice smooth drinking beer. Nice deep orange color. Taste is citrusy with hints of fruit. This is a easy drinking, light, refreshing ipa. I could drink these all day, But was hoping for a beer with a little more "Umph"
