look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a La Fin Du Monde Tulip glass, courtesy of a trade with @humuloner22
A - 1 1/2 finger fluffy head on top of a beautiful golden ale. Decent lacing.
S - Fruit and citrus with some grassiness and pine in the background
T -Nice malt backbone with tropical fruits, lemon, grass, some pine. Some Lemon rind on the finish
M -A light feel with moderate carbonation. This beer has several levels of flavors which transition dry finish.
O: This is a wonderful light bodied IPA. The beauty in this beer is it subtlety, there is a great hop profile but it is not over done. Easy drinker but there is no reason to hurry with it.

A light-bodied, well-balanced, tasty IPA that pleases, though probably not enough of a hop bomb for the contemporary hophead.

Poured from a 22oz bomber about 45 degrees. Huge voluminous amounts of head from a normal balanced pour. Full 4 fingers that lingered. EXCELLENT lacing throughout so no idea what others wrote about. Color is the most golden and perfect IPA hue. Aromas of citrus (orange and lemon mostly - maybe apples?). Definitely smell the hops but it isn't overpowering. Hits the tongue really light and frothy. Extremely crisp. Bubbles of carbonation float up constantly. Well balanced taste of hops, lemon and apples. Some pine but very subtle. Thicker than a normal IPA. Medium body. Dry. Clean. Clear and crisp. Slight hops and pine for aftertaste. Just incredibly smooth and good. Would swear I was drinking a premium IPA from California. Unbelievably good. Incredible bang for the buck as well. Will purchase more. Had another one that was not "fresh" and it was pretty bad. Make SURE you purchase it fresh.
