Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin foamy head. Head retention is not that great. Lacing is decent. More of a grapefruit and lemon aroma with hints of coriander and orange peel. More of a bready, malty taste at the beginning. There is a good hoppy bite. Hint of coriander and orange peel at the end. Decent beer. A little different but good.

I purchased this in a mix-a-six enjoyed chilled in an IPA glass.

The color is lightly hazed golden amber with thick white head. The smell has a citrus fragrance with light herbal odor and somewhat sweet smell of wheat malt. The feel is smooth with tangy yeast and light sweetness with mild juicy aspect with a mild bitterness level and semi-dry finish with medium carbonation.

The taste is very good with a orange peel flavor that dominanates the initial taste and some coriander adding that tangy lemony brightness followed by a slight herbal and citrus type hop profile with malt sweetness balancing the taste into a lightly bitter and semi-dry finish. Overall this is a pretty decent IPA, the hybrid character of wit and IPA is achieved but i have had some that are pull it off with more hop focus

This is a solid IPA. A little cloudy, light on mouthfeel, but good flavor.

Way underrated as far as I'm concerned...everyone who I give one to really likes it...it is very well balanced with not the strongest hop profile I will admit, but it is what it is and that is excellent...
