Flavor is an even citrus hop and simple sweet malt blend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, very sessionable and simple, but to it’s benefit.

Nose is a wee bit musty,but that yields to floral hops. Malt flavor is gone in a flash, and you’re left with a so-so IPA. Ok, that’s a bit harsh, as the hops have a slight sweetness before giving way to a bitter aftertaste.
It’s just not my bag, though I’m sure some people will absolutely love this. To each his own.
