Pours a pretty clear bright golden-orange color with a short white bubbly head. No retention. No noticeable carbonation but noticeable sediment throughout that's not yeast. Looks more like citrus pulp
Sweet malty citrus, grapefruit peel and a little floral on the nose. Pretty simple and restrained
Flavors are pretty well balanced, but not very much going on. Not complex at all. Mild hops notes. Aftertaste is hoppier than the middle. There's a slight odd bitterness up front transitioning to a balanced malt to hop middle, then fresh hoppy aftertaste
Smooth and slightly bitter mouthfeel that's medium bodied with decent carbonation
Overall this beer is pretty good. Not sure I'd order or buy it again if I wanted an IPA with the other options out there these days. On the bottle it says "Lively Hop Flavor." I don't get that at all. It's a very balance mild hop flavor. It could be a good IPA for people new to or trying and IPA.

A: copper brown. Plenty of lace that sticks. Inch head that dissipates pretty quickly.
S: fresh, citrusy, and floral. Hops.
T: moderate bitterness. Rounded pretty well. Grapefruit and citrusy with bitterness that lasts.
M: pretty high carbonation. Nothing wrong here. Not watery or too light.
O: not my favorite ipa but its definitely not the worst. Not too bitter. A more rounded ipa. Don't regret getting it that's for sure.
Serving type: on-tap
