A prominent hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, resinous, piney, and passion fruit character derived from the American hops. It has been judiciously dry hopped to add aroma. Some clean malty sweetness but generally a lot lower than that found in an English IPA. Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived bitterness, although moderate carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness. Colour is medium gold and appearance is clear. Good head with white to off-white colour should persist.
