Pours a translucent light-medium gold. Off-white head - some lacing at the top of the glass. Aroma is citrusy fruits and I can't help but notice some green apple. Taste is citrusy, piney and fruity. Medium bodied with slightly less than average carbonation - but very crisp and a semi-dry finish. Overall, this is a tasty brew that's refreshing and easy to drink. A more than solid IPA that I will be having more of.

On cask. Fantastic. Citrusy grapefruit and orange.

Not too heavy. Almost crushable.
