Aromas of pine, resin, clean grapefruit pith, fresh white bread, lemon juice and low yellow iris. A creamy, white, frothy head persists and clings to the sides of the glass with this brilliantly clear, light amber-colorered beer. Flavors of strong, clean pine resin, pineapple, white pastry flour and light caramel sauce are first out of the gate, along with the impression that this beer is hop-forward with a supporting light malt character. The finish is dry, crisp, with mouthwatering moderate bitterness and an aftertaste of clean, medium pine resin. Mouthfeel is highlighted by a smooth creamy texture, medium-high carbonation, low alcohol warmth, and medium hop astringency. Overall, this is an appropriately hop-forward American IPA that's clean, crisp and quite drinkable. Highly recommended.
