To me this was a rather bland IPA. No single hop flavor jumped out at me. There were the usual grapefruit notes but pretty subtle. I am only recently coming back to IPA's after about a 20-year drought, so to impress me, an IPA should really show a bold hop flavor!

Pours orange gold and clear with a half finger head. Aroma is al.ost non-existent . Taste is crisp and clean, no off flavors. Not much hop flavor. Low to moderate bitterness.

Overall a pretty good IPA if you want a standard IPA.

Pours a golden amber color with a thick white head that stays for awhile. Has a strong hop smell with hints of citrus. Taste has a malty forward with a hoppy finish.
