This is a fantastically simple, easy going IPA; it's a welcome reprieve from all the in-your-face IPAs that have inundated the market lately. There are not many times that there are legitimately great looking beers too, but this beer looks great in a glass. Brilliant reddish amber, perfectly translucent, with turbid effervescing bubbles. A crown of pillow like head sites atop. Very appealing and appetizing. Smell is sweet hops, honey and pineapple. Rate is extremely well balanced, hops forward with a sweet and earthy finish. Not overly bitter. Feel is light with bright carbonation. Overall one of the most well balanced and easy drinking ipas I've had.
