Clear amber brew, light and golden, topped by a decent snow white head with good retention and nice lacing.

Nice balanced aroma featuring pine and citrus hops, pale and caramel malts, bread, biscuit, and sugar. Nice wildflower floral notes as well.

Brew is less fruity up front, with a classic pine-and-grapefruit IPA profile. As pale malts carry powdery biscuit across your palate, tropical fruit and grapefruit pulp hits back strong, carrying you to a semi-dry, acidic finish.

Very lively, with a bit of sting. Relatively light feel overall, with drinkability slowed only by the sting.

This brew has a classic IPA profile, with just enough fruitiness to keep it interesting, but an old-school, knock-in-the-teeth bitterness that should make hop heads smile in reminiscence.
