Hazy golden color with moderate activity. Soft creamy and frothy light beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with weak legs. Flavors of sweet grains, barley, caramel, light butter, soft grapefruits and orange, wheat and dry noble hops. Slick and smooth full body with a sharp crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, a bit tropical and dominantly hoppy with a dry leafy feel. Nice intensity, going for an IPA, yet still feels APA. Good balance and taste. Filling and pleasant. The smell is a little dull though. Overall high quality craft.
