a great ipa, paler golden in color, light for its strength, and not at all weighted down or crowded out by any darker crystal malts. the clear honey colored beer is frothing from the can, accumulating several inches of bone white head that never really settles out. what i love here is the nose, fresh almost vegetal herbaceous hop profile, with all the resinous oily intensity of standard west coast ipa, but a step below that in overall bitterness, which lends to drinkability, even in a beer thats 7% abv, it goes down awful quick and clean. hops dominate the flavor too, as they should, but again they seem more welcoming than abrasive, like a cool pond on a hot day rather than fire for a dry mouth. longer finish keeps me tasting the sticky hops as for awhile, and i see this as a great gateway ipa with mass appeal for the style. versatile with food too, it works with everything from funky english cheese to grilled meats and veggies. a worthy offering.

Clean drinkable IPA.
Clear color, almost lager-like. Definite Cascade Hop taste without the grapefruit-like pucker mouth feel.
Influence of German hops smoothing the finish.
Enjoyable with barbacue food or on its own in contimplative mode. Frisco makes a good beer that travels well.
