Full Sail IPA has a thick, white head, lots of lacing rings, only a few streaming bubbles, and a slightly hazy, but mostly clear, yellow-orange appearance. The aroma is of oranges, orange peel, and bread. Taste is of citrus, sugar, orange pulp, unsalted crackers, and it has a pretty low bitterness for a 60 IBU rating. There is a bitter, grapefruit aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light to medium and fluffy, and Full Sail IPA finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. Overall, this a nice, nice beer.

A - golden color with a thick head that stuck around

S - very subtle hops aroma

T - the taste matched the aroma, the hops are very subtle for an IPA

M - nice, crisp, very drinkable

O - refreshing and not overpowering, I could see myself drinking several of these on a hot summer day. Could be the beer aficiando's Budweiser?

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear gold in color, with a nice billowy head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Faint citrus
Taste-Floral, herbal hops, toasted malt.
For an American IPA the hops are pretty muted and subtle, more like an English IPA. I expected a little more out of this beer. It's not horrible, just not great, in my opinion.
