Pours a finger and half of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice citrus smell. Easy.
The taste is bold but balanced. Lots of lemon and grapefruit bitterness with a touch of pineapple.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a tasty IPA.

A: Light amber coloring and a slight head.

S: Bitter, piney -- not overwhelming at all, but it's there.

T: Citrus and pine, but very nicely balanced. Not at all over-powering with hops or malt.

M: Medium body with a slight bitterness at the end; some mild carbonation as well.

O: A nice, light IPA that possesses some pleasant hoppy bitterness. Not a brew that overwhelms with flavor, but an enjoyable drink day or night. Don't turn this one down, especially lately. New recipe implemented in the past year has really allowed this beer to help itself out in the market.

Pours a light amber color from a can nice color.

Smells almost soapy with some fruitiness in there too.

Taste is pure bitter with little to no hop flavor. This beer is very dry but lacks the fruity flavor I expect in an ipa. Some late hop additions would help to add hop character without abrasive bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. Pleasant on a hot day.

Overall this was a drain poor for me. This beer would probably be a decent Pale ale but is massively out classed with all the competition out there today. I want to like this brewery but I feel marketing is their main concern with the beer a close second. Nice packaging though....
