AROMA: Fairly strong American hop aroma of citrus; especially orange and
lemon. Lightly sweet malt presence complements the hops. Minor alcohol
APPEARANCE: Pale orange/dark amber hue; hazy body with CO2 visible. Medium-large white frothy head retains and laces well. 3/3
Hop-forward palette with flavors of orange juice and lemon pith up
front and earthy/piney character on the back. Bitterness is firm with a
dry sensation, but nothing absurd. Malt base is a little sweet with
perhaps a light caramel character. Seems a bit sweeter than the average
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; medium-high carbonation.
Fairly smooth with a crisp finish and minor astringent aftertaste.
Though only 6.3% ABV there is subtle alcohol warmth. No drinkability
issues otherwise. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A little sweeter and maltier than I prefer in an IPA, but otherwise quite tasty and drinkable. 8/10
