Solid average IPA. Small head and okay lacing. Light copper color.
Nose gets pine and floral mostly. Nice bite with a sweet taste behind the hops. Not really bready but almost wine like. Carbonation is a little above average.
Nothing unique here except the grape undertone. Good solid choice and my first beer from this brewery.

Pours a clear golden with a white film for a head.

Floral and piney hop aroma with some grassy malt underneath.

Flavor is of pine hop, honey malts, and a grassy finish.

Medium body with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Fairly average IPA, drinks easy enough and tastes fine, but not outstanding in any way. If you are dying for an IPA, this will do, but it's not going to rival your favorites in the style in all likelihood.
