Pours a straw blonde with very little head. Sips quite smooth and light with a forward bitterness that is pleasant but with nothing to balance it out on the back end. This is a very light and simple ipa. Not unpleasant in any way but lacking the complexity of many other American ipas. A good before for sessioning and to quench a hearty thirst on a hot day.

Has an odd after taste... Almost taste like there was an old dried piece of Thanksgiving turkey in my glass . Maybe a bad batch. Perhaps it sat in light? Doesn't seem to satisfy. Great value though... A re-visit is certainly in order~
