Pours a copper orange, cloudy with some moderate carbonation. A nice semi offwhite fluffy two finger tall head.

Smells of piney citric hops right away. Orange and lemon zest hits the nose as the subtle caramel malts comes in with some sweet notes to balance out the smell.

Taste is refreshing and lighter than some other ipa's out there. The hops are balanced and blend well with the toasted wheat bread notes. Hops come in with some herbal, pine notes and subtle grapefruit. I'm not getting as much orange zest as in the smell. The caramel malt sweetness lends well to balance out the mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Moderate carbonation keeps the sticky hops from weighing down the beer.

Overall, I'm really enjoying this ipa. It's a refreshing change from the overly hopped ipa's. It's got the bitterness I really enjoy but is balanced nicely to keep it from going over the top.
