Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a white head.

Smells of tropical fruit and floral hops with a hint of cereal malt.

Big fruit notes up front - peach, grapefruit, star fruit - followed by a quick, slight hit of cereal grain. Finishes dry with floral hop notes.

I'm not big on this style, but a pretty decent session IPA. Refreshing, obviously no alcohol feel, but kinda lingers on the back of the tongue for awhile. Better than any BudMillerCoors on a nice warm day, though not much in complexity. But that's just me.

Poured in a pint glass on draft and got a half inch white head that leaves some attractive streaks of lace behind.

Smell is herbal earthy hops, pine resin, Mellon, and some grapefruit rid.

Taste follows nice amount of earthy hops, some Mellon, pine, and a little grapefruit bitterness to round it out.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, plenty of life, not dry, and drinks very easy but bigger flavor than 4.5% ABV.

Overall I would definetly revisit this, a very nice session IPA.
