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.

For those of you who love Toppling Goliath Golden Nugget, try this Iowa IPA! I think it is better than golden nugget. Beer for thought.
