Pours a light, very slightly hazy honey gold, fine sudsy white head retains as a film.
Potent piney and grapefruit hops in the nose, perhaps a hint of honey and citrus as well.
Balanced body between bready caramel malts and fruity hops with a bitter bite in the aftertaste.
Medium to full body with a mild tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
A smooth, highly drinkable ale, good IPA character but it strikes me as also having the potential to be enjoyable to someone who otherwise doesn't care too much for hoppy beers. It's got a great flavor balance in that regard. A top tier beer.
