Stateside IPA

16.9oz bottle, Green’s, Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Overall, very, very tasty.
Light orange pour, with (at first) what seems a high level of carbonation. After a few minutes of warming, this levels out to leave a very attractive sticky head and lace which is more reminiscent of a West Coast IPA.
Mouthfeel is very, very light. Lots and lots of fruit in the initial tastes which eventually catches up to a hoppy finish, but nevertheless the large fruitiness is the key here. I like it a lot, but to classify this as a big, West Coast American IPA is not really an accurate description – a twist on that, then OK I would agree. I would think of this as a Lite, West Coast IPA (is that possible?)
Plenty of soapiness in the finish after the sugary, grapefruit/orange citrus base.
Really nice. VERY drinkable.
