Pours an exceptionally clear copper color with a tight and clingy egg-shell colored head. The aroma is of a caramel malt and light floral hops. The aroma is quite light for an AIPA. The taste is of caramel malt, a bit bready, with a floral hop presense, lightly bitter. The flavor is quite neutral. Nice moderate feel with plenty of fizzy carbonation; finishes slightly bitter. This is a good brew but borders more on the APA style. The hop profile really isn't up to snuff for an AIPA, the hops get lost in the malt. As an APA this is pretty tasty. I marked it lower based on the AIPA style. Its worth a purchase. This is quite balanced and very drinkable.

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

Clear amber color with a white head that left a good amount of lacing.
Aroma is pleasant, sweet malt and floral hops.
Taste is good, the balance is there, malty sweetness between the bitter floral and citrus hops.
Medium bodied with a crisp feel, good carbonation.
Easy enough to have a few of these, abv unkown at this time but I'd guess it's near 6%.
