Though I suspect the hallertau addition was half design and half necessity - a young brewery like this must struggle to get the hops they want at decent prices - it works wonderfully. Rather than over the top mosaic dank you get these pronounced but elegant lemongrass, honeysuckle, wildflower, gooseberry things going down. It's a smooth, easy drinking IPA that gives up a lot of subtlety if you let it warm up a bit and pay attention.

Cloudy, light pale body with this white head.

Smells of tropical fruits, mosaic is very prominent on nose and the taste is similar. It's very hop forward with minimal malt body. Crisp finish is nice and refreshing,but a little more balance wouldn't hurt.

Overall, really tasty- would drink again.
