Very refreshing, easy-to-drink IPA. Nice amber color with some head and a little lingering lacing. Smells of floral and citrus hops, tastes similar along with caramel, malt and corn. Nice sweet backbone and just a hint of bitterness. Smooth clean mouthfeel, mild amount of carbonation. Very light and crushable!

My go-to beer. Sure, there are better, but this one is readily available around here since it's local, and it never disappoints. Medium in color, nice head, and it tastes good. I would describe the aftertaste as a little bitter but I like it - the aftertaste is much better than some other highly rated IPAs I've tried.

A: Poured a 2 finger head with some beautiful lacing. Color is a very light burnt orange, the beginning of Autumn when the leaves have just turned. Light carbonation. Can't get prettier than this.

S: Citrusy, piney hops. So incredibly fresh smelling. Some vanilla and almost tobacco.

T: Nice blend of hops and malt flavor. Aggressively mellow if that's possible. The pine comes across but is balanced by an almost a creamy wheat. Alcohol is noticeable but decently concealed. Leaves a slight bitter after taste and finishes clean.

O: A heck of an IPA that doesn't shove a pine branch up your mouth. Can drink this all day. Definitely a go-to beer in all regards.
