This one is pretty tasty with a mild hop presence.

Would purchase again, but the Batch 1000 is still my favorite from here. This is another nice go to though.

Would Drink Again: Yes

Look: poured into 25 oz glass. Lighter-tone than most IPAs, but the head, which was about an inch and a half, lasted for quite a while. Lovely lacing.

Smell: A little piney, citrusy, and hoppy. Simple.

Taste: Fairly straight forward but enjoyable. Floral notes brighten it pleasantly. Hoppy initially and well balanced by the malts, which set in midway through.

Feel: One of my favorite parts of this beer. Very comfortable. Coates the mouth without feeling suffocating at all.
