This is a pretty pale colored IPA. Its a straw yellow-gold. The head is tight, but short lived. Lacing is nice though.
Very floral, which is unique from the pine and citrus bombs of today's IPA. Some orange blossom and honeysuckle are called to mind. Malts are there, but are light at pilsnery.
Green, floral and sweet. The hops are in the front, but they are lighter and not very aggressive. Bitterness is only a balancing component. Tangerine builds the body of the fruity hops.
Thinner bodied than I would expect from and IPA, but this is a smaller, lower gravity IPA. Carbonation is sharp, due in part to the watery body.
A nice, drinkable beer. I'd gladly drink this, but I won't pick it over many other IPAs. A good flagship nonetheless.
