This was one of my "starter" IPAs which introduced me to the style years ago. Essentially this a good gateway IPA for those looking to get into the style who aren't looking for a bitter bomb...

Has a nice cloudy straw appearance with frothy 1-finger head from a vigorous pour

Smell has more in common with a Saison than what you'd expect from an IPA these days...zesty, floral, hay, and lemon

Very floral and lemony up front to drink, leading into some pale malt, with NO lingering bitterness on the back end. Strange to drink and IPA without that all important dry bitter finish

Moderate/heavy carbo helps to coat the tongue with all the flowery lemons

Easy drinking and very summerlike brew which fills in the gap between PA and IPA. Approachable for IPA beginners...
