2.68/5  rDev -26.4%

Consumed March 14th, 2012 from a pint glass. Bottle labeled as good until June 2012.

Appearance: medium to light golden, plenty of carbonation. A one finger fine white head.

Lemony, grassy aroma with a hint of sweet malt. Light grapefruit aroma.

Flavor is slightly corny. Light and husky crystal malts up front. Mineral water aftertaste offset by grapefruit note. Low bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thin, watery.

Remarkable only in its unremarkability. Avoid this one.

Served on tap at the brewery.

One finger head with mild lacing.

Sweet malt with caramel flavor.

Moderate bitterness with heavy citrus undertones. The finish is modest and long.

Overall, an easy to drink IPA. Great hop character, but not overly complex. I order it at restaurants as a beer I know it will be good.
