look; golden, slight orange hue, thin head, nice lacing
smell; floral hops, sweet rolls, a little alcohol
taste; floral hops, grapefruit, lemon, grass, malt, full flavored, nicely balanced, doesn't taste even a little boozy, finishes as crisp and hoppy as it starts
feel; smooth with some bubbles, crisp, medium body
overall; a crisp, full flavored lawnmower ipa if you have a small lawn, very nice

I didnt detect any distinct aroma of a typical IPA. The grapefruit, pine , resin aroma just was not there.
My first taste and immediately I thought of a cream ale. Smooth, soft and creamy. Much like a French Cremant sparkling wine.
The taste was enjoyable and it had a distinct taste of fresh cut grass.
The aftertaste was a bit disappointing, very short finish. But it did have that nice dry finish which I love in IPAs
