On tap, poured into pint glass.

A- Light orange with yellow hue. Not as dark as many IPAs. Nice one finger head, medium amount of lacing.

S- Wonderful. Many times I can tell if I'll really like an IPA by its smell and this one stood by that test. Lots of citrus and fruits on the hoppy nose this puts out. Grapefruit, mango, and orange up front with some floral and a hint of pine in the distance, just as one might expect from the strictly Centennial hops used in this one. Not much malt presence, but its there.

T- Awesome taste and smooth finish. Very juicy from the selection and amounts of hops used. Lots of citrus and pure juiciness in this fine ale. Just enough pine and bitterness in the finish to not let you get too carried away with how refreshing this tastes.

M- Light to medium bodied. Very crisp and fair amount of carbonation.

O- One of my favorite single hopped ales. Huge drinkability and very refreshing. 7% ABV is well hidden. Not much to say other than I will always get this when available in my area and its a must-try for any IPA drinker.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Pours with some head. A very light orange/yellow color. Hazy, not clear. Some lacing present.

Smell: Hops, a bit or orange peel, lemon. Very citrusy.

Taste: Hops, straightaway, with a touch of lemon in the middle and finishes off with a touch more hop flavor. Pretty mild hop flavor, not too strong. Well balanced with the citrus flavors.

Feel: Very light feeling. High carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good IPA. I've met many IPA's I've disliked greatly. This isn't one of them. This has a very mild hop flavor and is pretty good overall.
