Big white head slowly falls above a cloudy washed out straw golden colored beer.

Light aroma of slightly sour grains and even less hops presence but I think it's noticeable.

Very light almost sourish taste with a slight hops bite following.

A lightly dryish aftertaste on a lighter bodied IPA.

Very light hops for a IPA, maybe that's what a mid-American IPA is.

Holy hopsickle..

Yellow beer from the muthaland with tons of hops..

Needs more malt..nice hop profile but all IPA's worth drinking have tons of hops.

So fizzy and fresh tasting from the can..the alcohol content surprised me at went along well without turning into one of the IPA's that is more alcohol than hops..surprising feat indeed..

A solid IPA that needs a lil more sweetness to compete with the big boys..this one tastes like the lemon after you drank your iced tea..LIKE I SAID A TOUCH MORE MALT FELLAS and you got a winner..a malt that will add some maybe orangeish amber maybe?

Served in can. Poured into shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy, deep golden, with a tint of bronze. Head is a fluffy white with light lacing that slowly trickles down.

Smell - Initial: Bright floral with a light malt backing. I kept getting a hint of grapefruit out in front with floral aromas. Midway: Finding some caramel notes mixed with floral scents. It's enjoyable.

Taste - Initial: Light and smooth with a gentle crispness. The light malt balances well with the floral hops. Hops stay present through the somewhat dry finish. Midway: Best part of this beer I think. The beer has warmed a little bit and the hops seem to have awakened. Earthy notes are balanced well with the floral flavors with that dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry, medium mouthfeel.

Overall - Wish I had more than three. This is my second helping of this beer and I really enjoyed it. Definitely an IPA I'd keep stocked in the fridge if I could ready and easily procure it. Easy to drink with well balanced flavors and bitter hops at the finish. Leaves you wanting more without feeling weighed down.
