This IPA has a nice golden color. A respectable hoppy and floral nose. I feel that the body was a bit light for the style, but it was a very good beer.

Rich golden/copper colour. Nose: sweet, hoppy, floral. Thick & somewhat sticky feel. Taste: dry at first with little sweetness (not overly textured) giving way to a nice, sharp bitterness and lingering finish.

first thing i noticed was this is probably the clearest IPA i’ve ever seen. moderate citrus aromas and fairly well-balanced. not too bitter. pretty light body for an IPA

Medium gold color, 3/4 inch head lasted halfway thru, good lacing. Moderately hopped and left a long thin hop taste. Initially seemed hoppier, but that may have been due to a slight lack of malt. Refreshing, though.
