A: super clear golden yellow, nice carbonation leaving a 1.5 finger head and small amount of lacing as you drink

S: nice grassy slightly piney with a decent amount of citrus

T: very balanced and matches well to the nose, very light and crisp, very low malt flavor which lets the hops shine, great after taste that just lingers on your tongue

M: Lovely, light to mod body

O: classic IPA not overly bitter and so easy to drink

Thanks to Trilogy31 for sending this one along as an extra.

It's a really nice looking beer, pours a largely clear yellow-orange with a medium fluffy white head. It's got a really nice sweet citrusy hop aroma with bit of biscuity malt lurking as well. The flavor isn't quite as citrusy as the smell would indicate. A semi-sweet biscuity malt hits first which transitions nicely into a nice hop bitterness. The flavor doesn't blow me away, but it's nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall this is a well-crafted IPA that is rather on the bitter side, it's not too sweet or citrusy, but comes together nicely.
