Full Sail IPA pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of white head that fades to a thin cap, but laces nicely.

The aroma is of sweet citrusy hops with a hint of malted barley.

The taste is similar to the aroma. This is not an overly hoppy IPA. There is a nice balance to the beer.

Medium mouthfeel with a crisp hop bite around the edges.

This is a very quaffable beer with a distinct flavor; but doesn't beat you over the head with hops. Definitely worth trying.

A light pale amber, this ale had a thick pillow-foam head and left exitic lacing. The smell was citrus and pine, a little lemon, a bit yeasty and biscuity sweetness.

It tasted spicy with some hop bite, a little musty with pale malt in the mid-palate, and clean bitter finish that was a little grainy. Not an outstanding flavor profile, but drinkable. Mouthfeel was light but a little sticky. It avoids a watery feel by its spicy flavor and pleasant carbonation.

I don't know what contributed to the off flavors, but it was a definite detractor. Still it quaffed OK and delivered a nice buzz.
