L (4.25) - This beer is a nice pale gold color with a nice little wispy head. Almost textbook IPA

S (4.5) - I'd call this more of the floral/aromatic smell. It immediately intrigues and draws you in.

T (4.5) - SOLID. Nice hop flavor but not crazy bitter. Not super malty, but that isn't required for an IPA.

F (4) - This tends to be more towards under carb than over carb. Smooth and easy to drink as a result.

O (4.25) - I really like this one. I've had it many times over the last year or two. And I feel like it's only gotten better. Some people complain about Iowa breweries, but Confluence knows their beer. And this is their flagship brew, IMO.

cloudy amber orange , with a fluffy oily head.
pine, banana, cream, and lime smell
nice initial hop bite with a clean an fruity aftertaste, sweet grapefruit in the after taste.
not much carbonation in the mouth , which allows more of the sweetness to come through.
this is really tasty. I will have to have my sister bring me more stuff from confluence.

I like this beer, mild for an IPA but well done.

Bright citrus flavors without an overpowering hop explosion make this my consistent go-to IPA.
