Pours a hazy golden color with a wispy white head.

The aroma is floral with some grassy and citrus hops. It's fairly light in the nose.

The taste is of a sweet honey malt. The beer is offset with grassy and floral hops. Some nice citrus notes. Drinks bright

Moderate feel with soft carbonation. Great balance with a slightly bitter finish.

Drinks very easy yet is quite flavorful. (389 characters)

On-tap at RFD, Washington, DC

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of orange citrus, which also contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA isn't that bitter but has a nice appearance and aromas of citrusy hops. It can be considered as sessionable. (645 characters)

From a bottle into a Dogfish IPA glass:

The beer pours a nice bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself has a nice copper color to it. However, the giant globules floating around everywhere makes the appearance look uglier than sin and then some. I'm not talking about little floaty particles that might have been missed because of its size in the filtering, but giant, sludge like globules that make one think that it's infected (Which I thought it was and tossed two of them from the six-pack.)

The smell is fairly nice and unique for a session ipa. The beer as very strong rye notes with slightly weak citrus hop notes. The two notes work pretty good and make the smell nice and refreshing.

The taste is also pretty nice and refreshing. Strong rye notes bolstered by an almost lemony citrus. Very good and very refreshing without sacrificing the strength of the flavor.

The mouthfeel is decent for a session ipa. The beer actually has a bit more weight on it than is normal for a session IPA. The carbonation bite on this beer, however, is very good and gives it a nice refreshing feel to it.

Overall, a pretty good beer if it weren't for the giant globules of sludge at the bottom, which turn what could have been a pretty decent rye session IPA into drain pour. (1,290 characters)
