A: Pours a slightly darker shade of marigold. Nice lacing

S: Immediately starts with the fruity, citrusy sweetness. Honey, banana, mint, a little bit of herbal grass.

T: Starts with a bitterness and the sharpness of rind. It's tempered by a bready maltiness that never let the hops run away with the drink.

O: A much maltier beer than expected. A more balanced IPA.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-murky burnt orange color with a cap of a little white foamy head. Light touch of messy lace.
The aroma had some grassy chilled hops, light citrusy hop effects, some pine, and ended with a little bit of earthiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a touch of bitterness to round out the edges. Light aftertaste pulling in a bit more malt, but nice and clean.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps a touch under with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par. Semi-bitter citrusy to earthy finish.
Overall, it's a pretty good AIPA that I could come back to.

Hazy brownish gold body with foam that subsides relatively quickly. Smell - flowery, cherry, grassy, citrusy hops, with no pine or bitterness. Taste: Soft hops balanced with nice malt body. Slight citrus but more grassy like a fresh spring day. Feel: Good - medium light body and very drinkable. Overall: A good non-hopbomb IPA. Wouldn't seek it out, but would not turn one down.

Exactly what it says it is. A sweet IPA. Pours Honey brown with a half inch head that leaves lots of lacing. Not much of a scent. But a nice light sweet honey taste with enough hops for it not to taste silly. Not a go-to, but a nice change of pace.
