Served on tap at Yard House in Raleigh, NC

A: Pours a hazy golden copper in color with some moderate amounts of orange highlights and moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with stronger aromas of citrus hops - lemon and orange blossom stand out.

T: Upfront there were some light amounts of caramel malt sweetness but the flavors in this beer were dominated by the citrus hops (both lemon and orange blossom). Light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Overall a pretty enjoyable IPA from a new brewery for me (chosen from the menu without any research). Easy to drink and definitely one I would have again.
