This is definitely an interesting IPA. A bit too much perfume on the flavor profile (does that make any sense?), and the balance is leaning too towards tangy, but it works. A smooth and pleasant IPA, though not overly intense (which is fine). Dig-able.

The beer is clear golden orange with good lacing from a huge fluffy light tan head which dissipates slowly.

Smells is a bit light, but has some floral, bitter and citrus aromas.

Taste is a balance of malts and hops, with a light bitter throughout, and a light citrus sweet finish.

Feels very smooth and very drinkable.

A fine good balanced beer, but it's not quite what I am looking for in an IPA. Tastes more like an APA, especially with the lower abv and smoothness.

DOA
