On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a medium brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was Goid retention and lacing.

The smell featured a resinous piney hop and a juicy citrus.

The taste spotlighted the sticky Citra hops, with a dose of pine and a smooth round caramel malt.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a very tasty and brawny IPA.

Pours hazy yellow gold color with a 1 finger foamy head that faded and left a layer on top and very good foamy lacing with rings as it went down.

Smells of caramel, light grains, grapefruit, floral hops and sweet citrus fruit. Pretty soft for an IPA, but it has all the basics covered and nice balance.

Tastes like it smells with more bitterness and citrus up front, caramel, lightly toasted grains, grapefruit, lemon zest, citrus hops, floral hops, malt, biscuit and citrus fruit. Like the nose it's pretty soft for an IPA, but very well balanced.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with zesty carbonation, a sweet grainy flavor that trails off bitter and almost dry. Crisp and pretty easy to drink.

Overall it was a nice light session IPA that was not the most robust as far as being a hop bomb, but it was very well balanced and easy to drink.
