Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-20-2004

A blend of Bravo, Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hops give this beer a crisp, hoppy flavor. Dry hopping with Centennial gives this beer a beautiful aroma of citrus notes. Balanced but complex, this beer is a refreshing brew.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that died down rather quickly, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of floral and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of orange citrus along with hints of caramel malts and floral hops along with a very slight amount of bitterness. Some hints of watermelon are also perceptible.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I felt that this beer seemed to be somewhat weak for an IPA because it didn't deliver much in the way of bitterness from the hops. Apart from this, it is quite balanced and easy to drink.
