Hoppy floral and fruity aroma, I felt strong tropical fruit, particularly papaya. Which was lovely. The taste is grassy and hoppy with a light finish. Medium body. Nice beer, I would like it with a bit less hops.

Perfect session for these hot humid Mississippi days. Aroma is slight after a medium golden pour and small head. On the citrus end of the IPA scale, with a light body and prickly carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of citrusy hops with a hint of pine. Deep golden color with ultra white head. First taste is citrusy hops and sweet malt. Overall, high on the sweet side, then followed by a balanced bitterness that is mild. Finishes smooth with mild bitterness, that reverberates nicely. Nice intro IPA for a rookie, but enough there to satisfy a hop head. Nice beer.
