Poured from a cold 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Yellow and gold, 3 fingers of head, plenty of aeration. Head took a while to settle, good lacing.

Aroma: Malts and hops, more malts than hops. Some light hay aroma in the background.

Taste: Mostly malts, some bitter hops. No complexity.

Mouthfeel: Some background hoppy bitterness.

OK beer. I bought a 6-pack, but probably won't return to this beer again.

12oz bottle in a tulip glass.

A- Very hazy golden-light orange color. a 1finger head to start that faded quickly to a white film. Snowdrift lacing.

S- Mild hop aromas. Very floral, mostly, and slightly piney. Citrus rind and fair malts.
The hops are there, albeit a bit understated. No hint of alcohol.

T- Light malts, very floral hop flavor. Citrus rind flavor like from the skin of the fruit. Not boozy or sweet.

M- Not heavy yet very satisfying. Smooth drinking. Sprite hoppy finish, smackingly good.

O- Here I go again, bucking the tide. It's not pretty, ultra-hoppy, or a bomb of any sort, but it worked for me.

Not a bad IPA. Not weak on the hops for an IPA bit weak on the malt to put it out of the APA style. Nothing to write home about and a bit below run of the mill.

Hops don't pop but they're there.
