Poured from tap into pint at the brewpub. Abv says its 6% not the 4.5% stated above.
Golden color with super sticky lacing. Nice piney and citrus sweet hop aroma. Deff an ipa...
Taste is sweet piney and some lemony citrus hop...almost like pez. Nice bitterness followed by a malty smooth finish. Really easy to drink and good flavor. Nice ipa.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. The beer is radiant golden with a small white head. The aroma brings pine and hops with a hint of citrus. Smells nice. The flavor brings some tangy citrus, finishing with a bitter hop kick. Light to medium bodied with appropriate carbonation. Good stuff.

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a layer of white head. The head goes away rather quickly.

Smell: Mild hops with a nice malt backbone. Just a bit floral.

Taste: Citrus peel hops with enough malt sweetness to balance things out a bit. The finish is very bitter.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This was a solid IPA. There was nothing there to put it over the top, but I enjoyed it enough.
