3.3/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy apricot with a one-finger ivory head.

Aroma a rich and fruity malt of banana and over-ripe peach.

Taste a sharp cheddar-like bite of bitter hops that is rapidly overtaken by heavy carbonation. A malty aftertaste with bread and citrus undertones.

Mouthfeel a bit overwhelmed by sharp carbonation but medium bodied.

Drinkibility - a bit on the light side for an IPA, this brew is easy to down.

Not a bad IPA but definitely a medium body afternoon beverage rather than your typical desert-like, full bodied, heavy hopped IPA.
