Pours golden amber clear cream colored head. Malty with a citric hop that's lemony and earthy. floral and spice. Mild IPA with a good crisp malt. crackery and a lush fullness. this oneis mellow though. Hops show you all they've got while a light sweet caramel brings the beer to finish with a lackluster end. Mild, almost no bitterness although ti's reasonably balanced. Lingers with citrus cracker and spice. Mouthfeel is a lighter medium finish is sweet. needs to be bitter. Bland flat flavors and as far as the english style IPA is concerned lingering bitterness is usually present.
