look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(5/30/13 bottled date; drank 12/26/13)

L: pale peach to murky orange; murky opaque; huge head, over 2 inches of meringue-thick foam, off-white to light tan

S: big hops here, bitter citrus, grapefruit; sweet tropical fruit at times

T: for a 6-month-old IPA, not bad; very hoppy and bitter on the citrus side with caramel showing at times but not often; bitter, not sweet until it warms

F: solid all around

O: plenty good enough to try a fresh one ... in fact, i'll be seeking out a 6-pack of this soon if i can find some inside a month old

A: A quick pour into an english pint glass produced a finger of mixed sized white foam that persisted for a decent amount of time. It left a coat of streaking lacing on the edge of the glass and a layer on top of the moderately hazy copper liquid.

S: Grapefruit, citrus and dank resin hop aroma are the dominant characteristics. A slight toasty note comes in from the malt and a slightly fruity character.

T: A nice assertive pine and reisiny bitterness that leads to a more refined pine and grapefruit hop flavors consistent with the nose. A balancing bread crust and toasty malt profile that doesn't take away from the hop flavors but seems to support it. Clean fermentation character.

M: A medium bodied beer with a medium carbonation level. The reisiny hop oils coat the tongue giving it a slick mouth feel.

O: A resin filled, flavorful IPA with a supporting malt backbone. Won't blow your mind but, you could do a lot worse.
