Pours a deep rich orange-red. Head very weak with lacing same; however, thin head persists remarkably long for initial volume.
Aroma un-remarkable; average; straw with a citrus background and a hint of malt. Taste about the same but with an added prominent hop influence. Although apparently an APA I place it on the opposite side of IPA. Hops too weak for a true APA. Carbonation is off-center, a bit too forward for my taste.
Mouthfeel good, smooth, but rather weak in viscosity. Drinkability - refreshing.
This beer falls somewhere just on the weak side of IPA. The hops are prominent and somewhat bitter but don't linger long leaving the ambient citrus background wanting. A refreshing beer suitable for a mid-week lunch break.
