12 ounce.

Pours a mostly clear amber gold, white lacing for a head.

Smells of fresh citrusy and floral hops over bready malt. Some clover honey.

Honey and bread malts, and a varied hop flavor that touches on citrus, floral, and woody.

Medium to full body with tingly carbonation throughout.

Very nice drinkable IPA. Above average on all points and really nothing to complain about. The 2X version is better but richer while this goes down a little smoother and would pair with food better. Definitely something that could become a go-to for IPA drinkers.
