Pours golden amber with a nice white creamy long lasting head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus.Taste is hops, some citrus and spice. Mouthfeel is med body, with good carbonation. Nicely balanced, goes down easy and smooth. Overall a very enjoyable and drinkable Pale Ale.

nice light amber color with a thick golden white head that doesn't dissolve too quickly; very smooth; a good IPA rone that has the bitter taste that usually is associated with the IPA without leaving a bad aftertaste in the mouth; actually a little bit of a tart taste too which i almost want to say is a hint of lemon or at least taste's like it; actually has a lot of citrusy undertones in general; a pretty good beer that i would definitely recommend especially if you enjoy IPAs
