Summer Seasonal dry-hopped IPA, perfect for grilling. Pours amber with a fairly decent, dense, off-white head that sticks around for awhile. Smells of earthy hops and has a very slightly acrid smell of grain underneath- not enough to ruin it, but a slight blemish. The taste is mellow, not too sweet, and evinces a very nice hop character that showcases some pine and earth. Quite smooth, but the hops, although mellow, have nice length and offer a nice counterpoint the very nicely integrated malt. Not as in-your-face as it could be, hop-wise, but the lack of spiciness in the hop profile instead makes this easily quaffable and a balanced, appealing package. Nice brew.
