3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy reddish gold with decent head and lacing. Floral, citrus aromas. Tastes is slightly bitter with sweet notes, like dandelion, pine, lemon, and tangerines. This is a nice IPA for those who don’t like to be slapped in the face by hoppy bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Initial aroma of dank hops upon opening the bottle. Pours a hazy gold, off-white head that retains pretty well. Aroma in the glass is much more faint than when I first opened the bottle. Slight pine from the hops...slight citrus...and some hints of the bready malt. Taste is a bit thinner on the hops than I expected. More bitter and some sting from the alcohol in the back end. Medium thickness in the mouthfeel . Finishes with a nice biterness but was hoping for some balance from the malt here. Decent IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden. Smells lightly hoppy. Very smooth. Mild hops. Solid malt backbone. Not sure I can call this an IPA. Great beer, just not a great representation of the style.

A very light IPA. Somewhere between a Heffeweizen and an IPA. Great to drink at any time.
Some descriptors: lively, medium body, floral.
