A moderate pour from a bomber into a shaker brings about a one inch frothy, sticky head that lingers pretty well. The beer is a pale golden amber with about average carbonation.

Light floral and spice notes in the aroma. The flavor and body is underlain by a bready malt base. Citrus, berry and a slight spicy apple bite provide a nice complement. Fresh mown hay qualities are largely absent. It's not overly bitter, yet leaves a bit of a spicy tang that lingers on the palate. Medium bodied, refreshing, and easy to drink.

This is a well-meshed, mild IPA and perhaps one of my favorites of this style. Big time hopheads might disagree, but I like to taste the malt.
