Appearance- Amber, honey appearance. Very minimal head and head retention.

Smell- Light citrus smell with orange in forefront. Small nose.

Taste- Nice citrus flavor with a little floral hop profile. Bitterness is subtle but balances well with the malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel- Light and pleasant.

Overall- A very drinkable and subtly bitter IPA. A solid beer.
