look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a rich coppery-red color. Head weak with subsequent little lace.

An earthy malty-straw aroma overwhelms a citrus hop background.

Taste is a refreshing balance of malt and hops with hints of citrus. The straw aroma is manifested in a lingering bitter taste that is underwhelming but, again, refreshing. This beer is analogous to what one might think of as a "seltzer" IPA; for an IPA, it is weak on hops indeed, but the "refreshing balance" between hop and malt flavor leaves one wanting.

Mild viscosity for an IPA, the drinkibility is superb. This is an excellent Friday afternoon beer for transition between work and weekend.
