Poured into a pint glass. The color is medium caramel almost brown. There is a small off-white head on this.

The aroma has some sweet melon. There is a hint of mint noted.

This has some mild malt sweetness that leads to a grassy, slightly melony hop finish. There is a nice balance here.

This has a nice medium to full body, with sharp carbonation. This is decent enough; not the type of IPA I seek out but one that I do enjoy from time to time.
