Overall Impression: A beer with the dryness, hop-forward
balance, and flavor characteristics of an American IPA, only
darker in color – but without strongly roasted or burnt flavors.
The flavor of darker malts is gentle and supportive, not a major
flavor component. Drinkability is a key characteristic.
Aroma: A moderate to high hop aroma, often with a stone
fruit, tropical, citrusy, resinous, piney, berry, or melon
character. If dry hopped, can have an additional floral, herbal,
or grassy aroma, although this is not required. Very low to
moderate dark malt aroma, which can optionally include light
chocolate, coffee, or toast notes. Some clean or lightly
caramelly malty sweetness may be found in the background.
Fruitiness, either from esters or from hops, may also be
detected in some versions, although a neutral fermentation
character is also acceptable.
