3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear light copper body with a small fizzy white head that left a bit of lace. The nose is bright citrusy hops with a light caramel malt base. The flavor has a nice balance between the citrusy hop flavor and the moderate bitterness level. A slight bit of caramel sweetness at itís base. Lighter bodied for the style with fine fizzy carbonation. A pretty basic IPA, not very overwhelming on the bitterness making it fairly easy drinking.
