look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Served in a pint, bottled dated 10/04/2012.

Appearance: A slight hazy gold color with heavy bubbles on the body. Head is somewhat thick considering after two sips it still holds up with an initial settling of maybe a finger's length coming off white.

Smell: Light floral scent, comes and goes...I honestly don't feel much on this beer when it comes to what i am smelling. Not bad but I want just a little more.

Taste: Bitter for most, to me it's an almost perfect blend of what IPA's should be. It is light but then again it's not supposed to be an Imperial. You feel floral, and bitterness coming off very fresh which I absolutely lust. You have a piney-ness to this brew that is very unique and honestly it feels like an honor alone just to have it. Hop lovers will lust.

Mouth: Medium and awfully tasty, it feels almost like a thirst quencher and for that alone it's at minimum a four. You feel almost like a tree bark type of feel when you gulp it but don't be scared it's true hops that you are indulging in.
Overall: For what it is, I definitely wouldnt take it for granted, it delivers! It's robust not too much and offers a little bit of everything.
