Pours a light orange color with a light thin head. Smells like a typical IPA as well. Taste is good, pleasant, crisp with a bitter finish

L: Clear golden color, with a small white creamy head, and a sheet of lacing on the glass, a lot of carbonation.

S: Floral hops with a hint of tropical fruit and lemon and some earthy malt. Not the strongest aroma but it is quite inviting

T: Floral hops, some lemon and other tropical fruit, piney bitterness, and the some earthy malt to balance this out. Nothing ground breaking but very drinkable and tasty.

F: Pretty light body, medium carbonation

O: This is a solid beer, nothing groundbreaking but a very nice easy drinking pale ale.
