On tap, 12 ounce serving.

Hazy pale yellow color, 1f white cap. Lasting film and full cover lacing. Nice.

Aromas of fresh pine, citrus zest, floral perfume, and light malt. Grapefruit.

Flavors of cracker malt, grapefruit rind and juice squirts.

Malt medium body with citrus rind backing. Smooth on the palate with a dry and bitter finish.

All around good old American IPA. Goes down smooth at 7.9% abv.

A: Pours a murky pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising quickly along the edges of the glass and moderate bright yellow + bright orange + burnt orange colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense sudsy foamy white head that slowly reduces to a handful of small patches of thin film surrounded by a large patch of very slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + earthy hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of biscuit + oat malts with a light amount of grainy sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith + herbal + earthy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly leaving lingering citrus/grapefruit + citrus/grapefruit pith hop flavors.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp initially with moderate amounts of soft/fluffiness mid-body and a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a very pleasantly soft/fluffy mouthfeel with a bit of initial crispness. Refreshing. Enjoyable with a more "classic" IPA hop presence. Definitely could have a couple of these.
