Poured a clear yellow with a one finger white head and abundant bubbles. It looks a bit more like a lager than an IPA, which is odd. Scents of citrus, grapefruit pith, slight mango and pine. Very crisp and fruity, with pine balancing the fruit and citrus aromas. True to style. Taste has a good level of hop bitterness with citrus pith, pine resin, grapefruit and faint hints of tropical fruit, with a present, though subdued, bit of malt and a slight spiciness on the aftertaste. Very nice, the hop flavors are at the forefront and really lead to a nice flavor. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a bit of a slick and oily finish. The mouthfeel is quite true to form for an IPA, though maybe a slight bit too light bodied. Overall this is a good fresh hop IPA. It showcases the hops well, puts enough malt in to keep it from being unbalanced and is just nice and pleasant to drink. It's not quite on the same level as Sierra Nevada's Northern Hemisphere Harvest, but it's close.
