4.35/5 rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
This poured out as a nice clear orange color with a soapy white head on top. The retention is thin but has a very nice sticky lacing. The smell of the beer is packed with fruity pine-like hops. Very fresh and bright aromas on the nose. The taste is really good as well, lots of sweetness balanced with a great bitterness. The flavored of fruit and malt mix really well with a subtle resin finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied gently carbonated. Overall this is a very good IIPA.
Serving type: on-tap

picked up a sixer at local grocer, served at around 60° poured into a pint glass
2-3" head with large bubbles , ok lacing , light amber colour
alright now down to the tasting , by nose possibly cascade hops ..dry hopped
it appears by the results that's ok if your in a rush and want to make a hopped beer however much better if done over time throught the wort boil 60 120 180 min's etc.
yea like Dogfish ipa' s ! this is not a real WOW IPA and wont purchase this one again. Another corprate blaaa ripoff brewer doing it as cheap as they can.
