  • Pours cloudy with a half inch of white foam. Head sticks around for a bit, frothing as it recedes, leaving residue on the ping glass sides.

    Aroma is solid classical Centennial hops: a mix of floral and dominant citrus, leaning towards the citrus side. Not much malt on the back end. Calls me in for a taste.

    Taste is once again hop forward but doesn't carry the hops as well as the nose. Muted. Light touch of sweetness/malt that reminds me of Vienna malt. Citrus side of the hops is front and center. Bitterness is pleasant, not over bearing.

    Body is light to light-end of medium with light carbonation.

    The sites down the dial slight this beer. It isn't an in your face IPA but it is a solid balance, using classical hop profile. A little more malt profile would help to make this beer a bit more robust but solid nonetheless. Worth picking up. Enjoy!
