Bought at Total Wines & More in Claymont, DE as part of a make-your-own 6-pack. I'm new so I haven't heard of the brewery so I gave it a try.
A: Used to IPAs that are darker and redder in color, so I was surprised at how orange and golden it was. Also, the head was thin with very little sustain, which as also a disappointment
S: There were a good bit of citrusy hoppiness, though not what I expect from an IPA
T: The was the a little bite from the hops, but not the bitterness or penetrance of an IPA. The malt, bitter, and acid are well balanced because all of these aspects are equally weak. The balance is nice, but not the punch of a real IPA
M: The beer was a little thinner than I would've liked but it had a decent palate, pleasant carbonation, and smoothness
D: The thinness of this beer betrays the higher than average ABV so it's easy not to think about this when glugging this beer. But this softness on the palate also makes for a very drinkable beer that isn't overpowering and tiring

This beer is perfectly fine. If you need a quick IPA and this is all that's on, grab it.
A: Great head retention w fat finger of healthy off-white head slowly lacing the glass.
S: Not much. What's there is creamy, flowery hops with a bit of pine.
T: Sweet, oily hop forward: part floral and part citric. Good with bitter-sweet, asian food.
MF: Sweet, creamy, smooth with a moderate body and nice carbonation. Good grassy finish.
Half way between APA and IPA, a solid staple. I'd drink it again.
