Good hop flavor. This is what I like in an IPA.

Just had this for first time yesterday
Bottle into a glass
Color is gold
Smell is citrus hops
Taste is mostly hops. Not so much malt balance here, but does not devolve into dish soap.
Mouthfeel is not oily or heavy in any way
Overall, if you want a good hop bite in a beer that is lighter overall and therefore session material, this isn't bad.

A- 12oz bottle poured into a tumbler with a mostly clear golden body. A white head forms to just over one finger with pretty good retention. The frothy cap falls to a medium ring leaving a few big sheets of lace as well as spots and webs.

S- Mostly zesty citrus hops with bitter orange peel and grapefruit coming to mind. Yeast is just about clean and there is just a hint of fresh cracked base grains.

T- Bitter citrus zest driving the flavor and carrying over nicely from the aroma with grapefruit and orange in the forefront. A resinous pine element opens up with some floral notes as well. Just a hint of malt sweets for me with a clean yeast profile.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a smooth creaminess and a crisp overall feel. Carbonation is puffy and smooth at a fairly high level. Finishes with a medium-high bitterness especially for 5.9%.

No gripes about this one from me. Delivers a fairly bitter, aggressive citrus hop profile atop clean yeast and just a tad of malts backing it all up.
