On draft at the beerpub in Napa, CA this poured a cloudy gold to amber with a good sized off-white head and good lacing. Nose of citrus hops and some fruit. The body is medium and the mouthfeel almost greasy Slides across the tongue. The flavor is citrus and caramel malts and the finish is long, dry, and bitter. A very refreshing IPA and make you want a second glass. There is a lot to like here.
