A solid IPA to be sure. It won't win flavor awards or puckering bitterness medals, but this is a nicely drinkable IPA.

Looks good, light amber/golden. Head is just a touch thin.

It focuses on the bright hops profiles, as i call them. Light citrus with some earth that's not quite earthy...more like grassy. Aroma gives away that this is an IPA and the citrus is noticeable. Somewhat sweet throughout, with that SA yeast poking through.

A summer IPA for me. In the colder months I want something bitter-er and stronger. This can well with a burger or braut

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Nice golden color with some haze. Lacy head.

S: Fruity hoppy aroma, but seems a little bit muted. Like I'm smelling it from far away even though I'm burying my nose in it.

T: Not real hoppy for an IPA, but it's fine I guess. More malt balance than a West Coast IPA, fruity character to hops.

M: A little on the light side. Slight dry finish.

O: Nothing exciting to see (taste) here. I would only suggest it as a beginning/end to going through the Deconstructed companion series.
