I wasn't expecting much but turned out I liked this one. Must have been very fresh. Pours golden copper with small white head. Aroma is fresh citrus, some tropical notes, and a nice caramel malt backbone. Nice balance here, with some sweetness in both the nose and the taste. This is what an IPA should be. Tropical pine notes on the flavor, with a nice sweetness coming from the malts that makes this come off as some slight pineapple or mango flavor (but not overly sweet). Bitter is right on, giving this a clean finish. Slick mouthfeel, with enough carbonation to make this easily drinkable. Was actually surprised by this one.
