Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a golden colored body with a two finger white foamy head that rose and settled slowly. Decent amount of foamy lacing graced the sides of the glass. Carbonation was seen lightly rising in streams. The smell has a floral/light fruit hops with some light malts coming through as it warms. The taste has a combined bittersweetness through previously mentioned flavors. The palate is about a light to medium, is sessionable, and has a bittersweet aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.
