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

Amber color with a thick off-white head with a decent retention.
Sweet bready malt and fruity aroma. Notes of caramel.
Well rounded flavor. Notes of grapefruit, tropical fruits, slightly toasted malts which are quite present and caramel with hints of pine and resin. Dry with a long lasting bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with low carbonation.
Not a heavy weight IPA, more malty and relatively mellower on the hop area, but extremely well balanced and perfectly executed.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Beautiful deep copper color. Big, rocky, off-white head slowly settles to a half finger width. Great retention. Large patches of lace stick around after every drink.

Lots of malt sweetness. Caramel and some honey. Hops come through subtly, with some citrus and very mild floral aspects.

Much like the nose, sweetness is first and foremost. Bready malt. Finishes with a floral/herbal bitterness. No long lingering aftertaste. Drinks too easily and quickly to leave any. Medium body with mild carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel.

Like this one. Great summer beer.

Appearance: Dark amber with robust foamy white head
Taste: A bready, slightly sweet forepalate that leads to bitterness
Palate: Medium mouthfeel, with a lot of maltyness. Slightly bitter finish.
Overall: Fairly malty, bordering on a belgian style ipa.
