A- Nice gold/copper color with beautiful fluffy white head that leaves thick creamy walls of lace.

S- Citrus and floral hops in the front, grassy, background of caramel.

T- Nice bitter hop bite up front, sweet middle, and a dry bitter end.

M- Nice bite of bitter, medium/light balance.

D- The standard of IPAs. Nothing out of this world, but a great refreshing go-to beer.

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

A: Poured a 2-finger white head in a pint glass. Clear, orangish and more toward a yellow color to it. Was thinking this would be a bit darker.

S: Herbal, citrus, floral...pretty much what I was expecting. Left a nose of freshness that I liked.

T: Pretty good. Not the best IPA I've had but nonetheless, pretty decent. A rush of bitterness up front, then a bit of a dose of maltiness, and a dry, bitter finish. Like I said...pretty decent.

M: Right where it should be. Crisp, dry finish.

D: I like this one. Hot weather suits this brew well. I like it ice cold in my frozen pint glass. I do have a homebrewed IPA on tap that I think outclasses this one however.
