look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours medium orange with a chill haze. Nice sticky lace coating the glass.

Modest citric rind hoppy notes and toasted malt aromas.

Nice balance. Juicy hops not overshadowing the toasted malt. Citric rind and smooth bitterness finish.

Medium bodied, nice carbonation.

Easy drinking and well done.

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

Appearance: Yellowish orange color with pale head and small beading. Very little head retention and not much lacing.

Smell: Very light aroma. Malty and slight sweet with just a hint of citrus. Not at all what I expected from an IPA.

Taste: Very malty. Some citrus, but not much. A lot of pine. Bitter, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light leaning towards thin. A lot of carbonation.

Overall: It just didn't do it for me. Too much malt and a bitter pine finish. Almost no head retention either. Still, despite its flaws it's not awful. Refreshing and light.
