A - gold with a soft, white head that has good retention

S - citrus, grapefruit, faint pine, hint of malt

T - bread, bitter, pine, citrus

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a nice IPA, but a bit delicate on my palate. All the right flavors are there but they just aren't as forward as I would have preferred. This is definitely a good beer, but there are better.

Ligther pour than I think has become the norm for IPAs. Nice head, bone white, solid retention. Average lacing. Smell is heavy on the citrus end of the spectrum, with minimal pine and no presence of the abv.

Flavor follows suit, with a bit of bitterness towards the back end of the spectrum. Still almost no pine. Tropical fruits are toned down a bit (unfortunately) but there is still a solid wave of citrus that makes this quite enjoyable.
