Has something in suspension, whether hop particles or colloid yeast, that gives it obscurity through amber hues. The head is a sticky soapy collar of white foam that sticks around and becomes residual, like beaten egg whites.

Herbal nose with bright green leaf and citrusy freshness. Unripe papaya, green grapefruit, fresh peppermint, and thin pineyness summarizes the hoppy elements. All of this plays lead over a minimalist dry pale malt that reminisce with notes of salty cracker. Subtle note of seaweed salad in here.

The hops are very similar to what was sensed in the aroma. A simple bitter leaf, nearly-astringent floral character, and green fruits and fruit rinds; more grapefruit, a hint of lime, mintiness, and smallest of all, pine. Tastes like it was brewed with a more minerally water. Malts are just a tad sweeter than anything offered in the nose, but still very dry and clean.

Crunchy carbonation that dissipates after being chewed through. The rest of the body has that appealing mouth-whoosh that I love in a dry IPA. A little grainy in the end, the way I like it.

A solid IPA from a brewery that, I believe, just came to PA. I will have to remember to go to this one from time to time for a little change of pace.
