Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a healthy two finger white head with great retention and sheets of lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt and Eastern style hops, lightly citrus and floral. Flavor is crystal malt with initial somewhat muted citrus and light resiny hops that seem to hold out on flavor until a long, oddly complex finish that reveals citrus, resiny pine and grassy hops flavors and a surprisingly strong hop bitterness. Medium bodied with active carbonation. IPAs with mild malt and intense hops finishes without immediate herbal flavors are normally not a version I favor, but I really enjoyed the finish on this one. The hops and body are reminiscent of better European and East Coast style IPAs and this is a nice one of that style. Another nice ale from Reubens.

22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy straw color w/ a frothy bright white head, some patchy lace, moderate carb.
Aroma is clean citrusy hops and neutral pale malt. Smells kinda like orange juice.
Taste is dry, neutral pale malt and citrusy, slightly spicy PNW hops.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely rounded. Drinkable and refreshing, mildly bitter finish.
Overall a very enjoyable, but unremarkable IPA. Easy to drink and not think about, which is about perfect for summer.
