Pours a hazy golden color with a wispy white head.

The aroma is floral with some grassy and citrus hops. It's fairly light in the nose.

The taste is of a sweet honey malt. The beer is offset with grassy and floral hops. Some nice citrus notes. Drinks bright

Moderate feel with soft carbonation. Great balance with a slightly bitter finish.

Drinks very easy yet is quite flavorful.

On-tap at RFD, Washington, DC

A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose—oranges seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of orange citrus, which also contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA isn't that bitter but has a nice appearance and aromas of citrusy hops. It can be considered as sessionable.
