Appearance: 1 inch head, dark gold in color, medium-high carbonation, clear

Smell: earthiness and citrus fruits

Taste: caramel, earthiness and citrus fruits

Mouthfeel:slightly bitter, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A very refreshing, light and earthy IPA. The citrus hops are there, but the hops never overpower. Tasty, but may require a bit more hop power for those into hoppier IPAs.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light golden brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, light caramelized malts and fruity citrus.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering grassy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is thin but provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid and poundable IPA to drink for a long time.
