This beer falls into the category of a "standard" IPA for me, as far as strength goes. This beer doesn't intend to be a hop-bomb and I appreciate that - it is a nice, crisp, bitter, but easy-drinking beer of which I could have many in a single sitting if I so chose. I would definitely recommend this as a good ipa to try - especially if you are not overly familiar with the style. Most of what I have tried by Full Sail has been good and I would say this is my favourite thus far.

The brew pours a clear, golden color, and is capped by a thin white head that provides spotty lacing. Citrus aromas come out of the gate swinging, mostly grapefruit and orange notes, and is met by muted toasty cereal malt hints. Citrus and just a touch of piney hop flavors dominate the pallet before being evened-out by a slight caramel malt backbone and a slightly bitter finish. Smooth throughout, Full Sail IPA is medium in body, and features a moderate amount of carbonation.

Cheers!

Appears as a rich amber with a creamy, long-lasting white head. Smell exudes caramel malts with a citrus and pine hop bouquet. Hop bitterness dominates the taste, coupled with a thin malt presence. Medium bodied, fairly effervescent on the tongue, clean and dry.

I hoped for a bit more balance with this beer. The malt taste and aroma pale behind the strong hop bitterness. A good beer, nevertheless...

Golden in color and high in clarity. Crowned by an impressive ivory head and a sticky ring of lacing. Nose features pine and citrus but is a little faint for my taste.

Taste is pleasant with citrus and floral hops and some accompanying bread and caramel notes to the malt. Texture is thick enough but matches the carbonation even;y, which is a plus. The malt really strikes the right notes but I could use a little more of that famous northwestern hop assault to really make this a contender, but this is clean and drinkable. Not something that stands out but a solid, if mellow example of the style.
