Very spring-like that's for sure. A flowery and grassy smell and initial taste. Tge aftertaste brings about a lingering bitterness that stays on the palate. Not my cup of tea, but to each their own.

A: Pours a semi-translucent light gold with two full fingers of pure white head. The foam takes a little while to settle, leaving a rocky layer across the top of the beer. Nice lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is pretty one dimensional. Sweet malt dominates, and I get just a touch of lemony citrus and some fresh cut grass.

T: It starts out sweet with malt and caramel, but there is something off about the initial hit that tastes like old vegetation. A bit of spice shows up in the middle, but the beer never really develops. The finish is more malt with a small amount of hops bitters in the back end. I don't get much flavor out of the hops, just bitters.

M: Light bodied beer. It's sweet and coating to start. It envelops the palate and remains malty all the way into the finish. Mix of sweet and bitters to finish off the beer. Not very pleasant.

O: Not a fan of this beer. They label this an IPA, so I expect some solid hops flavor components. I get none. Just bitters in the back end. I will not buy this ever again.
