A good IPA should be as pure an expression of fresh hops as can be had, and this beer follows that rule. It’s a pale, very clear dark gold/light copper beer that starts with citrus lemon and orange with a touch of pineapple hop aroma as backup. These aromas carry over into the flavor along with some fruity notes, orange marmalade, and perhaps even some mango. The flavors are nicely integrated with a bit of malty balance, and the finish is only pleasantly bitter, not harsh at all. It’s this nicely bitter finish after the abundant hop flavors that provide a touch of elegance to this quite hoppy beer. This is a well-made IPA.
