A very hazy orange body with a bright light center. Four fingers of white bubbles rapidly dropped to one, then settled. Good dense lacing.

Citrus aroma with some pine and a whiff of cleanser. Not overly assertive.

Sweet beginning with a sloppy dose of malt that slides around the tongue instead of building a foundation. A quick fleeting note of citrus. Then it's all bitter. There is good bitter and bad bitter. This is not good bitter. And it lingers on and on.

Light-medium mouthfeel. Acceptable.

A one note IPA and that one note is not exactly the closing note of "A Day in the Life". An inexpensive bomber that wasn't worth the price. Not recommended.
