A – Pours true to the style. Light amber honey hue. Translucent, and head is bright white, recedes quickly, and leaves nice, light lacing behind.

S – Nice bouquet here. Lots of citrus and sweet malt notes here, light lemon, grapefruit and pineapple.

T – Bitter, fruity and nice pine notes. A little metallic note to it as well, overall very clean, malt backbone comes through here, but it is only lightly sweet, nothing cloying.

M – Nice and crisp, carbonation is near perfect.

O – Very drinkable and refreshing IPA here, nicely bitter and balanced out by some light sweet malts. The nose on this one is great.
