From the growler, it pours an American IPA standard hazy amber with a moderate head. Goodly bits of grass and citrus in the nose. Yumminess in the fresh hop flavor. Feels nice going in and entirely easy to drink! Yum!

L: Yellow/orange in color, translucent, and bright.
S: MIld aroma of bread. citrus, and herbs
T: Peppery, almost spicy hop quality. Citrus zest, pineapple, grapefruit, and a bit of pine on the finish. Not very bitter, more zesty than anything else.
F: Light body, smooth, easy drinking, and tastes great, not astringent.
O: Really nice IPA.
