Hazy pale gold with a large amount of suspended particles. Decent white head with good lacing. Smell is mostly floral hops. Taste is floral light grapefruit hops with minor malt for backing. Mouthfeel is light to medium and adequete carbonation. Overall a decent "light" IPA. Bottled on date is 1-29-14 so take that into account . I would rather they bump this up to about 5.5% to get a bigger flavor profile.

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a semi-hazy dark orane color with frothy off-white head that left glass coating lace.

S- Citric, herbal, some seltzer notes, but a lighter aroma.

T- Prominent citric hop notes, some herbal, and piney hop character, light malt backbone, and seltzer flavor.

M- Pretty smooth, prickly carbonation, and lighter bodied.

O- A pretty good amount of hop character for a session IPA and definitely on the lighter side.
