Tried on-tap at the brewery restaurant in Seattle.

Pours a golden orange hue, with a filmy ring of white. Body is pretty lightweight, but not poorly so. Some spidery lace forms as the beer goes down. Fine carbonation. Looks good overall.

Nose is bright and fresh, with tropical fruits forming the bulk of the aroma: citrus, pineapple and some sweet tangerines. Not much of the sharper pine needle sector. Pretty decent overall.

Palate is light, but tasty and balanced. Smooth malt creates a clear, glassy, but substantial basis for the fruity hop characters to come through, releasing fresh citrus, crisp orange peel and lemon zest and bunches of herbs. Very pleasant.

Not a bad drop at all. In many respects, it's a pretty standard IPA, and doesn't really stand out from the flock. But it's a good example of one, and a pretty solidly drinkable one.
