This beer poured clear orange with a thick white head that held steady until late in the tasting. The aroma was hop-forward with floral notes backed by a solid malt base. The taste too featured both significant maltiness from base and caramel malts and plenty of floral hop notes. This medium-bodied beer had the appropriate strength and malt/hop balance for the American IPA style. The mouthfeel also displayed a well-sustained carbonation and lacked the hop astringency sometimes experienced in well-hopped beer styles. Overall, this is a very drinkable IPA lacking the drama of some versions that try to overreach their style guidelines.
