Description 

A delicious hoppy IPA. A generous addition of hops with a kiss of malt sweetness balances this IPA very well.  The nose is upfront with the galaxy hops, lending nuances of grapefruit, pine, and tropical notes.

Citrus hop aromas combine with piney and fruity notes to deliver a firm punch of aromatics to the nostrils. This beer poured a quite clear copper color with a khaki-tinted head that slowly receded to a thin cap. The flavor was dominated by a tropical, juicy hop character, which melded together with essences of citrus and pine. A biscuit-like caramel malt base supported the hops and provided the balance needed to keep the hops in check. A firm dryness was noted in the finish of this medium- to full-bodied beer with appropriate carbonation and alcohol levels that were evident yet not overwhelming. This is an easy-drinking American IPA with a plethora of hops that holds its own against higher gravity examples of the style.
