A prominent floral and orange citrus hop aroma leaps out of the glass as it is being poured and remains in the forefront of this delightful IPA. A light, bready maltiness and mixed berry esters help round out the aroma and add some complexity. The orange citrus hop character takes center stage in the flavor and is supported by a smooth and moderately high hop bitterness that lingers into a medium-dry finish that helps accentuate the hop flavor. The mixed berry esters and bready malt make a balancing appearance in the middle along with a complementary alcohol warming. Both elements linger into the finish to provide some intrigue. The overall hop character is fresh and bright, and this very pintable IPA will appeal to all of those who love hops and well-made IPAs.
