I had this beer 4-5 times on tap @ work and it was beautiful, definitely a world class beer and a stellar example of an IPA.

Excursions #1 pours a cloudy straw yellow, with a small, creamy head on tap. The foam disappears quickly leaving behind spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is light with notes of lemon rind, pine and bread. Hints of grass also present.

Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is smooth and watery with mild carbonation. The flavor is well balanced. It begins with lemon rind and a touch of orange citrus and a hint of pine. A bit of bready funk appears in the middle. It finishes with mild bitterness and grassy hops.

This is an easy drinking beer with mellow flavors. Well balanced and easy drinking.
