3.8/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Big soapy eggshell head tops a clear golden amber body, thick chunks of lacing and excellent head retention.

S - Malt forward for a californian IPA. Some citrus and pine in there but secondary to the caramel malt.

T - There's the orange acidity, solid hop bitterness backed by the honey and caramel.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation. Dry finish.

O - Not a bad IPA but in a style so scattered with greats this pales in comparison in terms of complexity and depth of flavour.

This beer has a lot going for it. It has a thick mouthfeel and pleasant honey flavors. It has a very bitter flavor while sipping that lingers as a strong aftertaste. This is something I am not particularly fond of in beer, though it's something that others sometimes look for. I finished drinking the beer I used for this review but I wouldn't buy a 6-pack of it. If you like hoppy IPAs then you might love this beer. It's other flavors are quite nice.
