Served chilled from a bomber. New white label design with the old picture in the middle and a small enjoyable blurb about the beer/IPA history on the side. It says that this beer is brewed with Columbus and Centennial hop varieties.
Clear copper color with a sustained one-inch head. Citrusy smell, with malt, hops, tropical fruit, and pine shining through. Medium to light carbonation. The hops are pleasantly tingly on the tongue, giving the beer a refreshing quality. The flavor is fruity, sweet, some grapefruit, subtle bitterness remains on the tongue in the aftertaste.
Overall, medium bodied, with a pleasant tingle and fruity hop flavor. One of the easiest-to-enjoy choices in the world of IPAs.

Pours a clean clear copper color with a tan bubbly head
Lemon city's zest, heavy hop aroma, bubblegum in the nose
Earth and pine in the taste, with some grapefruit and pineapple.
Super balanced, not an overpowering ipa for the amount of alcohol.

Appearance - uncapped, it begins bubble formation and starts creeping up the neck. Very fluffy into the glass, lots of bubbles clinging to the glass. A thick finger of manila foam, very sticky.
Aroma - pineapple, mango, pine, sweet citrus. Smells outstanding.
Taste - caramel malts, to the sweet side for sure. Lots of orange and lemon, some dry pininess in the background. Lots of citrus up front, drying in the swallow and aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - heavier than average, very carbonated but it doesn't come across as much during drinking.
Overall - one of the most enjoyable IPAs I've had in a while. Short list for max sessionability.
