Overall, an OK IPA. The aroma is lemon-citrus, mild pine, and more floral in nature. Flavor is playful withcitrus fruits and a milder maltiness. Hops really only appear at the end of the taste and is quite overwhelming (as I'd expect from an IPA). This is a good beer, but just doesn't meet the characteristics of excellent IPAs.
