Light bronzy gold hue, quite clear with a smallish densely foam capping of off-white foam. Keeps a slender collar and a few spots of lace.
Aroma is nearly missing entirely; I wiff, and wiff, and wiff, and there's not much there. A bit of clean cereal grain sweetness and a puff of hops.
Taste is simple yet ample enough for some good easy drinking; as I can see downing quite a few of these in the warmer months. Overall the taste level isn't very big though, but what is there is good enough for what it is, light, clean malt base of light grainy sweetness and a tiny toastyness twisted on top along with a bit of super dulled orangified bitterness of hops. Finish gathers a small swirl of dryish leafy hoppyness. Probably the best aspect of any noticteable character of this beer.
Body is light and clean just under a medium body, smooth with a decent tenderly sweet maltyness to its base as it finishes with a light hoppy complexity of dull citric bitterness and leafy dryness.
An OK brew that comes pretty close to the English style IPA with a bit of lacking character and complexity. It does have a nice simplicity about it that encourages itself to be a good session brew.

My favorite IPA! Appearance was darker than expected and did not have the brash bitterness that often comes with the choice of a pale ale. The hops were delightfully balanced and gave a fresh punch at the front of my mouth and finished well. It paired exceedingly well with a medium salsa and the spice of South American cuisine. A prime drink indeed!
