Pours a very pretty golden orange hue with an offwhite head that leaves a lot of lacing. First smell is of citric fruits, lemon drop candy, floral hops, and fresh picked berries. Flavors of dry grain, grass, slight honey malt, and a hint of fruitiness to round things out. Mouthfeel is a tad bit thin, but overall I'd say this is underrated (likely due to the lack of in your face hops). Enjoyable and a great value.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Floral notes, herbal, with some light citrus tones on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light to medium bodied. Finishes with more floral hop notes and a touch of malt.

Poured a reddish orange color in a Spiegelau glass. 3F head which quickly diminished to 1F.

The aroma isn't very strong: malty, light citrus, a touch of sweetness.

The taste is excellent. Citrus, piney, possibly tropical fruit. Not sure of the hops- possibly some Mosaic.

Mouth feel and finish: excellent. Tangy, hoppy finish.

Overall: at a colder temp this beer is lackluster. At a warmer temp, the citrus, pine, and tangy MF really come through. The aroma could be a bit stronger. Otherwise, lots of flavor in this beer.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a pale orange color with a light foamy to bubbly white head. Minimal lacing slides into the beer.
The smell had some piney and earthy notes.
The taste was basically the same with a decent caramel and bitter background. There's a quick dry caramel finish.
The mouthfeel was a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light and allows the bitterness to be the harshness adequately.
Overall, its an alright IPA, but somehow I see it more of an English one as there's not enough bitterness. I don't recommend this to hopheads.

Light and crisp - easy drinking. Nice beer to have in the middle of the day. Tastes good both chilled and at room temperature. I would call it more of a session IPA.

Poured a translucent copper/orange color; not much head and minimal lacing. Smells like malty pine needles and earth; tastes like citrus, pine, and wet sticks; finishes with a caramel and bitter backbone. There was also some peppery funk in the aftertaste as well. Felt medium to lighter bodied; crisp in a sense. Quaffable, yes! It was a decent IPA, but I've had better.

I'm not sure if this is even an IPA. It tastes more like a hoppy English beer
