A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a thick head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy and grassy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of grassy hops with hints of herbal hops and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is quite easy to drink and isn't that heavy on the palate or overly bitter.

Serving type: bottle

Not sure if it's different ever batch but my bottle says abv is 6.2%

Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a nice two finger cream colored head. The head falls slow and laces well.

Aroma is tropical hops, mango, orange, some light grapefruit rind like bitterness.

Taste is kind of like the nose but more mellow, hops are favorable some tropical fruit. Finish is touches of bready malt some grapefruit bitterness mingled with pine and mint. Not bad about average, not sure of age as bottle isn't dated.

Mouthfeel is light medium with average carbonation.

Overall not bad but not great just in the middle of the IPA group.
