A - Arrived at the table with a thin head. The color is a bright straw yellow. Not really typical for an IPA. Quite hazy in color and with nice lacing, but the extreme lightness in color made me wonder whether I was, in fact, looking at an IPA.
S - Nice strength. I am immediately wondering what hops are used in this beer, because it's all citrus. No pine. No tropical. All lemon. Still wondering if I'm looking at an IPA.
T - And there's the lemon. There is something else buried in the lemon that I've had before, but can't define. It's a bit of an off flavor. Really light cereal/crackery type malt. Mild bitterness.
M - On the light side of medium-bodied. Refreshing. I like a bit more substance out of my IPAs.
O - Blatant may have put together an IPA that is accessible to a broader summer market. It's not the IPA that I was looking for, but I could see how some people would like it. The lemon really was shockingly present to me and I'm surprised that only one of the recent reviewers described it as such.

Orangey apricot, hazy and full of particulate matter. Orangey beige head of thick lumpy froth that lingers long, leaving large bubbles and lace up the glass.
Aroma of ripe fruit, cotton candy, and bubble gum. Flavors of honey malt, fruit, toffee, punctuated by firm bitterness, flavors full of orange rind and grapefruit, some piney notes emerging in the finish. Moderate mouthfeel. Decent beer, but would like more depth and hops.
