This pours a classic medium bodied amber, with a nice fat head that initially bubbles and grows but dissipates in short order. The lacing is maintained only near the beer level in the glass.

The aroma is mild, though citrus notes are present as others have mentioned.

The taste is hard to pin down, though never unpleasant for me. Initially, on my first sips I tasted a heavy hoppy flavor, almost skunky. But the malts tend to work their way forward by beers end. Throughout there are hints of citrus with kind of a piney caramel finish - really a nice combination.

The mouthfull like the taste tends to shift from a mellow full bodied start to a dry crisp finish.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. IPA's are my favorite, and I really liked the subtle shifting that this beer offers. It will be a joy to try and pin this one down a bit more through further sampling.
