Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy golden honey color, with a nice white layer of long lasting foam with good retention and cling. Aroma is of citrus, yeast, and fruity sweetness along with some caramel malty smell. Taste is rather bland for a "IPA" Not much in the way of bitterness at all, there's a good sweet malt character as well as a small citrus and earthy taste from the hops, and that's about it. Medium carbonation, medium low body, smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Overall not a bad beer, it's just not an IPA by any sens of the term in my opinion. Pale ale, it hits right on the head, but could still use some more complexity to the taste profile. I only happened to pick this up as part of their seasonal pack, so I'll be having at least 2 more, but after that, who knows. Good to at least try, just don't expect a hop bomb or anything too complex.
