the best of the three india pale ales we had here, made with hallertau blanc and el dorado hops. there is a nice springy light fruitiness to the hops selected, honeydew melon and citrus come to mind, and the malt base is appreciably light which allows the more delicate nature of these hops to be on display without being pushed to the margins. i think thats a smart construction, but it also seems a little less flavorful than it could be, despite being really fresh, like they could have increased the late kettle and dry hops on this by 30% or so and made a much more unique and dynamic brew. its crisp and dry though, which i like in the style, especially in the hot kansas city summer. nice bright citrus to this in the middle, but it fades in the back half. not quite enough carbonation to it to be as refreshing as the flavors suggest it should be, but a solid ipa, and definitely better than their other two they had going at the same time. these guys were hit or miss, the dark stuff beat the hoppy stuff by a long shot.

Poured out a golden color with a one-finger head of white foam. It smelled piney with some citrus notes. It tasted very toasty with some sweet citrus. Nice piney bitterness.
