Poured into my Half Acre pint glass. A slight haze infuses the beer while the foam is a couple of inches of semi-frothy goodness. Retention is what one would expect from an IPA. Lacing is almost not a part of the beer. S uprising.
Aroma brings me thoughts of citra: orange, mango, and that typical cattiness. Pine rides behind while both are built on a slight bread malt backbone.
Taste doesn't hold the amount of malt or hops that the aroma does (dry hopping). Nevertheless tropical fruits and pine are there, especially in the finish, creating a pine and grapefruit bitterness that lingers.
Very light body. Too little for the beer. Carbonation is on the lighter end too, quite possibly adding to the perception of the body. Dries the palate a touch.
The light body creates huge drinkability while the hop bitterness knocks it back a tad but not enough to make this a very pleasant experience. I solid look at a lighter beer. Enjoy!
