Pours a clear, light copper with a soapy white head that settles to a thin cap. Lovely floral hop aromas of pine resin, grapefruit, and fresh-cut grass. More resinous, floral hops, lots of grapefruit and pine with a mild caramel and baked cracker malt profile. Mouthfeel is crisp and drinkable, with a medium body and solid carbonation. Overall a superb "everyday" IPA, and it's affordable to boot.

This beer has an intense hop aroma as soon as you poor it and stays intense until you've finished drinking it. It's so pungent that it really does impact the flavor of the beer on the pallet. The flavor though is deliciously balanced and hoppy. The clarity is perfect and the abv is just right.

Overall, I would prefer less hop aroma but overall, I like this beer and will definitely buy it again and again.
