A - Poured a bright, light golden-copper with some rising bubbles, finger and a half of white head with good retention, and some decent lacing.

S - Big floral hop presence in the nose dominates some less noticeable toasted malt and herbal notes.

T - Floral hops are moderate and tasty in the front. Transitions with mildly balancing underlying malt before moving into a pleasant and prolonged bitterness in the finish.

MF - smooth and crisp. Refreshing. Pretty drinkable. Body is medium. Carbonation matches well and finish is nice.

O - Still new to the IPA hoppy styles, and this has been a nice gateway. A good pick all around.
