3.79/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

The beer pours a pale gold color with a 1/2" creamy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is pretty solid. It has a nice pale malt and grapefruit hop aroma as well as a touch of Carapils malt. It's bitter in the nose, yet it's well balanced with a touch of malt sweetness. The taste is good as well. Again, it's easy drinking with a good deal of grapefruit-like hop character. The malt bill balances the bitterness. It's not overly complex, yet it has plenty of flavor. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a tasty IPA that's not just a hop bomb. It's light in color, but not in flavor; an every day IPA.
