Good not great. A weak IPA from a great brewery, more like a pale ale. Very light color, good hop aroma, worth trying though many better options from this brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft pour. Light amber, orange color. Small, thin head with a little lacing. A little malt, but very predominant orange flavors. Light, thin palate. Very carbonated. Refreshing brew. Would be good for hot summer day. Unfortunately Iím drinking it on a dark, rainy/snowy northern November day... loses a little of itís appeal.
