4.03/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy lighter shade of amber with a nice head that leaves copious amounts of lace

Smell: Citrus pith and pine

Taste: The malt plays a relative neutral role as a platform for the pine and pithy flavors that build through mid-palate and linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice, hoppy IPA - not a knock your socks off beer but a good everyday drinker; better than what I was expecting based on the reviews here

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Looks like a bottling code on the bottom of the bottle but it was offset so the first part was cut-off. Was a hazy golden yellow color with some carb streams. It had a small head that settled into a good collar and a thin covering film. Moderate lacing with some sticking.

The aroma was nice and hoppy with pine and citric pith leading the way. Some caramel malt as well but this is a hop show so just a touch. The taste was also nice and hoppy and again pine leading the way. Also getting some grassy hops as well. Some malt. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation. Moderate bitter aftertaste.

Overall, a good IPA that, as others stated, won't blow you away but just seems to hit the easy drinking sweet spot. From Austin so available in TX obviously. Rotation - worth the occasional single in mixed hoppy sixer or maybe even a 4pk. Would like to try on tap [O;Y]
