This is a very nice Everyman everyday sort of IPA. I could see swigging this drink after a hot day mowing the lawn. Better than average craft and slides down refreshingly well.
A: This pour a relatively clear amber/orange color a thin line of foam that fizzles clear in roughly 30 seconds. I personally enjoy beer with heady foam so this appearance detracted from my preference.
S: A sweet hoppy smell; not overtly strong as I experience them in other more hoppy IPA's.
T: Taste was pretty straight forward, nothing underlying or overtly interesting about the flavor. Refreshing wheat with a medium bitter hop flavor that lingers after every swallow.
M: This beer felt "refreshing," the effervescence was very nice making the physical texture feel light and crisp passing the tongue & palette.
O: I enjoyed this beer and would certainly serve this at a picnic. The flavors weren't overpowering, while they also weren't that interesting. However, the overall effect was of a refreshing spring or summer beer.

3.29/5 rDev -15%

Appearance: burnt orange color. Slightly cloudy body. Finger and a half of head on the pour which settled in but was present while drinking. Sticky lacing left behind at each level. Average active carbonation for the style.
Smell: Airy biscuity malt backbone hits the nose first. Some light tropical fruits pop up on the body but are stifled by substantial bitter pine. Caramelized malt is present and well integrated throughout. Accents of pineapple, kiwi, and peppery spices round this one out.
Taste: Mixed front on some medium bodied pine, light tropical fruits, and chewy caramel malt. These flavors are non-desrcript and nothing really pull the drinker in. An above average malt thickness takes over on the body and finish. Light lingering pine is felt on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Sweet malts, light to medium bodied lingering pine throughout. Carbonation fits the mission for this brew.
Overall: An easy going, malt forward IPA. Light fruits are picked up but hop profile comes off with more of a piney bitterness. Good starter IPA for an inexperienced drinker.
