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

A: Poured a clear bright orange color with a a moderate white cap, some bubbles and light lacing

S: Smeels big and fruit with oranges and pineapple with a light citrus note. Hints of caramel appeal to me as well

T: Pretty solid. An immedaite hop bite with ripened citrus and some tropical fruit, light pine on a caramel backbone. The finsh has pronounced, dry like hop bitterness with a slightly slick, prickly finish

M: Medium bodied. Well carbonated. Loads of citrus, lingering bitterness and a tad bit of astringency

O: Pretty good

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured light amber into a tumbler with a fair head that dissipated quickly.

Smell is resiny citrus and caramel malty.

Sticky and dank hops play well with the solid malt profile. Grapefruit rind. Bread. Nice crisp finish with a lingering hop stickiness.

Feels light on the tongue, but this is a palette coating resinous beer.

Well balanced and well constructed, I think this is an excellent example of an American IPA. It's maybe not the best, but I love this beer and hold it as my standard for the style as it was actually the beer to get me on hops to begin with. Maybe I'm biased. Still, recommended.
