A: Pours a hazy light golden yeallow with 1 finger of fluffy white head. Very light for an IPA, and quite hazy, as MBC's beers seem to tend to be. Moderate stringy lacing is left down the side of the glass.
S: Big juicy citrus hop aroma rich with grapefruit, stone fruit, peaches, and guava. A light piney character and a hint of spice. Really nice aroma.
T/M: Light-to-medium body with moderate fine carbonation that fills the mouth. Finish is crisp with only a slight hint of drying. Clean and low in flavor up-front, the carbonation kicks in and props the beer up until the malt and hop characters step forward around mid-sip. Mid-sip is a slight piney spiciness along with a mild malt sweetness, which gives way to a swelling moderate citrus character. The finish is very lightly malty (cracker flavors) with a moderate hop bitterness that lingers. Alcohol is very well hidden.
O: I am enjoying this, but it isn't anything particularly special. The aroma of this beer is really where it shines, so be sure to have it fresh. It looks more like a pilsener than an IPA by most accounts, but the lightness really isn't a huge detractor. Everything else about it is fairly pedestrian, but nothing about it is offensive or miserable, making it an entirely enjoyable beer overall.
