Big citrus nose with a bit of a unique sweetness that was unexpected. Earthy hoppy flavors come through slightly. Not heavy on the tongue. Orange with great lacing. Very good!

Solid IPA that was bit more on orange-citrus side than the spicy side. Orange-colored with floral hop nose. The taste was well balanced - strong citrus with grass and bread in there too. easy to drink. Very passable IPA.

The aroma is fairly subtle and not overwhelming for an IPA. Appearance is nothing special--rather light in color. Great taste with the typical hoppy flavor that isnít too much. Crisp finish--drink up!
