A- clear deep gold. About a finger of foamy white head lasts a while but eventually dissipates. Some lasts and leaves nice lacing. A little visible carbonation.

S- richly malty sweet with caramel and floral notes.

T- subtle but flavorful. Floral hops dominates up front and melts into the malt backbone.

M- a big bite from bitterness on the initial taste smooths out at the end.

O-a delicious summer ale

Pours a kind of yellow-y golden. Good head/lacing.

Refined floral/pine/earthy bouquet. Potent, with malt balancing nicely. Ginger biscuit, ginger ale qualities.

Taste reinforced the aforementioned flavours. Has a dry and slightly astringent, "ginger"-y finish.

Mouthfeel is dry, hoppy, a little boozy. Flavour gives the impression of malt but without the sweetness.

Solid IPA, but lacking some lusciousness and a presence somehow. Would happily drink again though.
