This American IPA begins with classic piney and grassy hop aromas, which are predominant. Underneath is a very low, clean maltiness, followed by citrus fruit, peach, and red apple. When it warms, there is a soft pils-like aroma and spiciness, reminiscent of a Belgian Blond. This beer pours a hazy mohogany color and carries a solid white head that lasts. Its flavors are very similar to its aromas, with an added vegetal and herbal aftertaste.  Bitterness and carbonation are moderately high. All in all, this IPA is a fine example of the style.
