12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Golden straw with great clarity on the pour. 2 Fingers of puffy white head. A nice film forms on top, giving a nice level of lacing.
Citrus hop aromas dominate with a crisp clean zing. Orange zest and nice toffee-esque malt base that is rather hidden, but tries to come out.
A lot of balance is achieved, but the main hop profile is rather foreboding. Orange zest with a bread/caramel malt backing. Something similar to a soapy finish. A bit sweet, and with the orange, it comes off like watered down orange soda.
Carbonation is a bit high, giving a bubbly mouthfeel at first, followed by a mild syrup finish. Very clean finish, kind of brisque, with no real depth. Yearning for more, but it is a bit lacking. The hop strength overpowers any length of flavors.
For 7.1% ABV, it is a rather drinkable IPA. I could see knocking a few of these down in a night. Might also serve as a good intro into the style.
