Started off well with an attractive bright yellow, clear appearance with plenty of bubbles and off-white head. Nose was floral, but a tad weak. Beyond that, this was nothing to speak of, for me. That's not to say that it wasn't a well-crafted brew; in fact it reminded me a lot of HF's Abner and What is Enlightenment? They're just not my cup of tea. The date stamp was illegible, so perhaps it was an old bottle?

this is a re-review.

I had it in a bottle and didn't think much of it.

Had it on tap and thought it was an excellent balanced citrusy ipa. Enjoyed it much more on tap.

Pours a medium clear gold with moderately thick white head. The head has light retention and leave small sticky lacing. The aroma is light with tropical fruit and pine notes. The taste is about the same. The body is lighter but not watery and easy drinking.
