Clear gold with a white foamy head.
Very faint nose with a floral malt hint.
Has a rather thin, light body.
Thin hop and slight nut flavors quickly dissipate to a sour twang and sweet malt that stay with you for a while.
Not bad persay, just really weak. Not much to it at all, not done well enough to be called "delicate" either.
Serving type: on-tap

A strong coppery gold in the glass, good head retention with streams of carbonation up the glass, very clear. 3.75
S – crisp grapefruit upfront, floral notes in abundance, caramel biscuit malt, light and fruity, very summer-y. 3.25
T – a nice punch of cascade hops, lots of ruby grapefruit and pithy bitterness, dry florals and a dry body that lingers with robust citrus notes drying out on the finish. Some grassiness, the hops are good and the bitterness balanced by the maltiness, but I feel they fall a bit flat, fairly one dimensional in terms of the cascade/grapefruit profile. 3.5
M – moderate body, high carbonation, quite a sessionable fruity IPA. Good bitter pithy feel to it, with enough of a biscuit malt base to work. 3.5
A tasty, easy to enjoy American IPA, not too many bells and whistles, clean and dry which I like, but the hop profile doesn’t overly impress. Would be good for summer, malts are there but surpressed a bit and hops dont really shine. Clean but not very exciting.
