A- slow pour from a can into a DFH ipa glass gives way to a cloudy dark golden brew with a 2 finger off white head that sticks around for a good while. Lacing is wispy and sticks to the glass quite nicely.

S- A nice floral aroma puts the hops on a pedestal. Citrus of grapefruit and tangerine. A sugar confection malt base accompanies. A spry fresh smell.

T- Hop forward with the citrus smelled plus papaya and mango. A candy like sweet malt base show up for only a second before fading back. Hops take over the finish with a resounding bitterness. Maybe not the most balanced, but it seems to work well.

M- Mid body, dry. Light, subtle carbonation. No alcohol detected. Sits well on the tongue.

O- Not bad. I would say an avg to slightly above avg ipa. Has many of the characteristics I look for without any of them really blowing me away. My first from NEBCO and I look forward to many more.
