3.68/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle.

A- Pours a light hazed darker amberish golden color. Two finger eggshell white head shows good retention. Large thick streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S- Grapefruit in the front of the beer comes in lightly along with a hint of caramel malt. All the aroma of the frontend like the backend is muted. Some orange like aroma toward the middle. Ending of the aroma has semi-sweet caramel malts mixing with earthy piney hops. No real alcohol aroma is present.

T- Caramel malts in the front of the beer gives way to a light grapefruit hop. To me the hopping in the beer is lighter in the flavor than in the aroma. Carmael underbody shines in this beer with a light piney hop bite in the ending. Alcohol is light and semi-sweet lacking a big bite.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Caramel malts and citrus hops are what's left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly caramel malts, light alcohol, and piney hops. Medium alcohol drying on the palate. Flavors are balanced for the style in more or else of a English style to me. No off flavors at all.

O- A nice sessionable IPA that has a little higher ABV than most session beers. A tad on the sweet side at times this beer is clean and has some nice crispness to it. A good simple drinking IPA from Crown Valley.

Easily an inch and a half of tightly knit eggshell colored head. Golden to light amber in color with some moderate haziness. Brussels lacing. Aroma is of some slightly vegetal hops and bready malt. Flavor is more of a tropical hop flavor along with some light malt. The mouth is fairly carbonated.
