Crisp citrus, orange comes through but not normal sour orange peel. Some floral/fruity notes, but fairly subdued for an IPA
Pretty thin to be honest. No real bitterness on the finish along the sides of the mouth.
Pours light amber in a new belgium goblet, no real head to speak of lingering although a slight amount of lacing.
Bitterness comes through, fairly bland with some slight sweetness from the malt and some floral type bitterness from the hops but fairly forgettable.
Sure, if you like it. Very light on the palette without much aftertaste, could session but there are better options.
Not terribly bad but not very good. With IPA on the label I'm comparing it to those. Less hops than expected, not enough aroma or bitterness. Needs more body to hold this together.
