Nice color to this beer. I'm smelling a nice malt base with some citrus notes sitting on top. Smells good. Taste is a bit muted but I would call it the mix from the nose all at once with a nice dry finish. The aftertaste give me some lingering almost metallic bitterness but in a tasty way. Quite carbonated. I could drink a few of these for sure.

Taste somewhat like a session IPA.
I can really taste the dry hopping. Crisp.
I could power these down with no problem.
Plenty good but does not really stand out.

Pours golden with a half-inch head. A very drinkable pale ale. Light citrus hops and even lighter malt. A nice middle of the road six pack for two guys - one who likes craft and one who likes cheap and normal.

Dry-hopped creamy IPA; smooth and elegant. Clean. Easy-drinking. Think Guiness Draft as an IPA. 5.4% ABV.
