Listed as a "blonde IPA brewed with German and Czech pilsner malts", which I didn't know the equivalent of for style. Taste-wise I think I got it close, but who knows?

Pours hazy yellow, more like a witbier than an IPA. The nose and taste, however do tend towards IPA. Nose of grass and grapefruit is prevalent. As I sip, the mild head laces the glass for a short bit.

Less malt-forward than most DFH beer, the bitter grad holds the tongue for most of the taste. The grapefruit balances this as is the predominant flavor, but the taste is somewhat floral. There is a little dryness, but it the grapefruit cuts it enough the it doesn't overwhelm you.

As stated, not as sweet as a DFH beer, but a nice subdued tart/bitter pale ale.
