Poured on draught into a pint glass. Extremely drinkable and moderately juicy ipa with a nice hop profile. Notes of grapefruit, pine and pineapple. Nothing crazy but delicious.

Pours a clear golden amber with a thin smear of white head across the top. It still leaves some small dribs and drabs of lacing. The aroma has good floral, citrus, and pine hops qualities, as does the taste. The taste is a little light but it still offers all the flavors of the aroma. The body is lighter but not thin with just a slight carbonation tingle.

L- Clean golden body, fluffy white head with good retention. Leaves a thin crown throughout the entire beer.
S- Grassy hops, bread and a well packed citrus punch. Not complex.
T- Tangerine, lime, orange rind, floral hops, well balanced.
F- Medium, light.
O- Very good and solid IPA, well executed, nothing special about it. Very easy drink despite the ABV.

Golden milky color. Strong hoppy smell. Good carbonation. Strong hoppy bitterness, a little bit of woodsy pine, but not overpowering. Well balanced, hint of fruit in the taste. Very very drinkable.
