12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/7/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of light grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, honey, toasted bread, light caramel, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and bready malt sweetness; with decent strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, honey, toasted bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, honey, toasted bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a solid IPA. Good robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Tastes very wheaty... Not in a good way. Doesnt wow me with complexity. Has a lingering bitterness that is never remedied. And an abv that isn't attempted to be masked. Def would avoid this beer unless only other options were light.
