Light on aroma front.

Some sour lemon flavor, solid, sweet malt base, fairly faint citrus hops. Not much bitterness at all.

Creamy texture

A good balanced beer, but I would rate it higer as a pale ale.

L: Amber hue with a full white head that sticks to the glass beautifully.
S: Citrus fruit aromas that are complimented by herbal notes. I wouldn't call it dank, but some might.
T: Very interesting flavor profile. It has a very subtle earthiness, but it's also juicy. I can't compare it to another IPA I've tasted. It has this East Coast/West Coast amalgamation happing in the flavor and I love it.
F: Very dry and nicely carbonated. The bitterness is a bit intense at first, but it calms throughout the session. Very crushable at 6.2%.
O: This beer is an underrated gem. I'm not going to make this about how it's score is entirely too low, even though it is. But I think it needs to be said that this is an outstanding beer. There's not a lot of flash or glamour with this beer. It's a blue collar workhorse in terms of craft beer. Nevertheless, it's always on point and it never disappoints.
