look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a medium golden color with a white head that recedes to a fine layer. The smell is fruity and citrusy. In the taste, citrus, melon, pith and some earthy pine to round it out. This is a nice balanced IPA that has great West Coast hop flavor but is also remarkably light, clean and easy drinking. Overall, this is an impressive IPA from Speakeasy, outstanding stuff.

Serving type: on-tap
