3.78/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving: On-tap at the Harpoon taproom in Boston, MA
Served: 1 June 2014

Appearance: Clear brown-amber color with minor head and minimal lacing, though this could be attributed to the size of the sampler tray.

Smell: Floral and citrus hops, sweet.

Taste: Floral and citrus hops again, with a slight earthiness. Sweet malt backbone. A good "balanced" IPA between the malts and the hops, something that one doesn't see too often.

Mouthfeel: Fresh and bubbly.

Overall: I think this is an underrated beer from Harpoon. While it certainly won't knock your socks off, this is a solid brew with a good balance of flavors. Would recommend.
