An extremely nice American IPA. Pours with a fair amount of chill haze, but has a beautiful, tall white stand of foam. Wonderfully pungent citrusy hops upfront in the aroma are followed by a crisp, crackery, bready malt. In terms of this beer's flavor, the hop character is pleasant but not overwhelming and blends beautifully into a soft, pleasant, palate-cleansing finish of bready malt. A delectable and quenching IPA on the lower end of the ABV spectrum for the style.
