Thanks to Trilogy31 for sending this one along as an extra.

It's a really nice looking beer, pours a largely clear yellow-orange with a medium fluffy white head. It's got a really nice sweet citrusy hop aroma with bit of biscuity malt lurking as well. The flavor isn't quite as citrusy as the smell would indicate. A semi-sweet biscuity malt hits first which transitions nicely into a nice hop bitterness. The flavor doesn't blow me away, but it's nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation. Overall this is a well-crafted IPA that is rather on the bitter side, it's not too sweet or citrusy, but comes together nicely.
