4.14/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured a beautiful, clear, amber color to a tall, thick head, slowly settling to a creamy collar and leaving nice lacing. The aroma was big and hoppy less grapefruit and citrus to me though and more spicy, floral notes. The taste followed suite with some nice malty sweetness at first but quickly transitioning to spicy, floral hops with hints of pine and citrus rind. The finish is very dry and smacks of American bittering hops. Medium carbonation and body fit for style and keep the beer light and refreshing. Overall an excellent IPA, although much more floral and spice than the fruity citrus I was expecting from reading other descriptions (not a fault, just surprised).

On tap; poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - bubbly gold; modest white head that leaves solid lacing.
Smell - the citrus hops, mango and apricot grabs your attention and your senses; well done!
Taste - that's good; follows the nose brilliantly! More please!
Feel - an IPA like it should be; hop forward, but not overly aggressive, well balanced and easy drinking!
Overall - available in a 12 pack and in a can, bonus!
Serving type: on-tap
