Great citrus hop aroma. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel lets the hop flavor really shine. Great citrus flavor, still maintains a touch of juiciness. All citrus hips flavor but the malt adds a softness to it to keep the IBUs down. Easy to drink and a ton of flavor. Not as bitter as a true IPA but seems to allow more flavor to shine. Finishes dry with citrus flavor lingering and a touch of bitter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
