A very nice, middle of the road pale ale. Hoppier than some but not as hoppy as the hoppiest pale ales that manage to not be classified as an IPA. Just generally tasty and easy to drink. There's a slightly fruity note in the hops, kinda curious but quite enjoyable. You won't be disappointed if you get a sixer.

Look: medium copper color, slightly off white head, clear.

Aroma: Big kiss of pine and citus hops/grapefruit. Light caramel.

Taste: Hops jump out, same description as aroma. Finishes with sweet malts.

Feel: well carbonated, bitter, medium body.

Overall: Nice beer, would fall more into light IPA than APA.

Side note: first time to buy, poured from can, bought.in Irving, Tx. Would be fun to hike with a six pack of this. I would buy again.

Very average IPA with nothing memorable about it. This new IPA trend is flooding the market with subpar IPA's and this is no exception. Tastes like a million other brews I can think of with the strong grassy taste, amber coloring, carbonation and malty hops aroma. While this is not a bad beer, it is extremely ordinary and I probably won't even remember drinking it in the morning. I live in Arizona and Arizona has a poor community of brewing and this does not help our cause.
