3.7/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

P:  Thin off white head that hovers over a clear darkened apricot/copper color. 

S:  Mellow crisp nose of citrus hops, pale malts, apricots, orange, grapefruit and fresh grains with a touch of herbs. 

T/M:  Medium body with timid toasted malts and grains with and fruity presence of grapefruit, apricot and orange zest. Hops are subtle and not too bitter but it's nice for a summer ale.  Sun dried lawn clippings and a slight rustic flare develop when it starts to warm.  Finish is crisp and dry with lingering orange zest. 

O:  Nice IPA especially for those looking to embark on the world of IPA's it's a gentle beast of bitter that has clean flavors and nothing overbearing. Would drink this again.

Serving type: on-tap
