On tap at the Village Tavern in Geneseo, NY.

Pours a mostly clear orange, with a quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like pine and grass, but in a strangely muted way.

The taste is similar. Pacifica adds an interesting hop flavor, fairly grassy, with some fruity hop flavors, but it's tempered by some watery-ness. The flavors are just weirdly muted. I don't know if its the Tavern's tap lines, or like I suspect, Pacifica just isn't a good enough hop to isolate on its own for bold IPA flavor.

Light bodied, crisp, slightly fluffy mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable, goes down pretty easy.

This tasted alright, with a few problems.

A - pours a hazy deep orange with a finger of white head. Quickly dissipated.

S - nose has some spice notes, Faint sweetness from malts as well as faint hops. Not a lot here.

T - Nice sweetness of the bat. Light citrus comes in after that with some earthyness from pacifica hops. This is a very summery IPA.

M - savory, light to medium body. Very drinkable. Nice carbonation.

O - overall decent. Not six points best, but I enjoyed it.
