Thanks to Shrode21 for the trade on this one.

The appearance is a pretty typical IPA. A nice burnt orange with a decent head that didn't linger too long. There seems to be way more carbonation bubbles that a lot of other brews have. The aroma is dominated by clean citrus hop aroma. There are hints of tangerines, lemon, and grapefruit all apparent in the aroma. The taste is much more balanced than smell suggested to me. There is plenty of a toasted grain and barley taste that shines through and coalesces with the hop character very nicely. The mouthfeel is a medium body and a lot of the excessive carbonation that was there in the pour seems to have vanished.

Overall I think this beer is solid. Sure, it may not be a hop bomb like many other IPA's, but the balanced taste of this beer is very enjoyable and still offers a nice hop profile. Not excellent, but pretty good. Better than the 79 average that is currently carries.
