Poured from tap into pint glass at Nano-brew festival PDX.

The description from the brewery says it's 'straight forward' and they aren't lying... Pours a decent hue with decent head that quickly dissipates and leaves little lacing. Nose is simple with light malt and simple hop oil notes and a hint of citrus. The palate is rather limp and dull, there is really nothing very exciting going on. Texture is medium to light, especially for a 6.2% IPA. Rather average.
