Golden Yellow Appearance Revealed, Carefully poured small head of foam, just a 1/4" thick, which dissipated in less than 30 seconds, and left almost no lacing on the sides of the small 8oz heavy crystal mug employed. Hazy!

Smell is grapefruit right up front. Upon opening the cap, a greeting of pine wafted this golden promise of good IPA.

Light, crisp, refreshing, lemon peel, birch bark, grass, combine with the hops overpowering the malt in that way a hop head like me desires.

Great carbonation attained for quick drinking. Last sips were flat, yet not a disappointment either. Good on the way down to flat, in that the flavors opened up as it warmed, with a bountiful warm hoppy yield.

Overall this ha got to be one of the finest sessionable IPAs I have ever had. It's winter now as the review goes, in a warm home. This reminds me of summer.

I get a good, nearly white head over an orange-yellow body. It retains a decent ring and really clings to the glass.

Pine and floral hops make up most of the very pleasant aroma. Searching, one can find a hint of buttery crackers and citrus.

The taste is akin to eating a citrus salad with flowers. There is a bit of pine in there as well. This is an excellent hoppy beer.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied. The carbonation doesn't make too much of itself. Dry finish.

Appearance is golden yellow with a two finger head.
Aroma is sweet honey, citrus, and grapico?
Taste is also balanced bitterness and malt with the same delightful grapico like flavor.
Lots of citrus.
Mouthfeel is solid, not too creamy or oily. Flavor doesn't linger much.
