A: Pours a golden, amber in color with a fair amount of white, sticky foam. Tons of lacing around the edge of the glass as you put this one back and what appears to be a healthy amount of carbonation. Lighter looking than expected, but it's a welcome surprise.
S: Aroma is on the lighter side as well with hints of grapefruit, mango, apricot and a spice. There is a subtle malt backbone, but it's masked pretty well. Not much pine. Earthy.
T: Sweet malt profile up front which transitions into into an amalgamation of citrus and tropical fruits with some pine and earthiness in the background. Finishes crisp, dry and bitter. Aftertaste is mostly bitter citrus.
M: The body is pretty light for the category with a clean, crisp carbonation and a little bit of cream. This beer has some substance to it, but it's pretty thin in comparison to some of the heavier beers in the category. There is a bit of an oily quality from the hops, but it's fairly minimal.
O: This is a very refreshing and drinkable IPA. It has enough flavor to please and is light enough to be sessionable. I really don't have any complaints about this beer, but it didn't blow me away either. Great for an IPA craving during warmer weather. Cheers!
