3.53/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden yellow color with a big white head that leaves spidery lacing down the glass. Smell is floral hops with a light biscuit background, pretty average for an IPA of this strength. The taste is grassy, resiny hops with a light floral background and a bready malt backbone that balances the beer a little. The hop's werent really as big or complex as i was expecting, really a middle of the road ipa in my book. The carbonation is somewhat high for an IPA and it makes it refreshing and crisp but the finish is dry and not bitter enough in my opinion. A descent brew but nothing special.
