look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: copper colored and hazy, in addition there are larger bits suspended in the beer, lightly carbonated, one finger head that dissipated quickly and then retained a thin unbroken layer throughout, there was a fair amount of lacing on the glass. This is a beautiful looking beer.
SMELL: pine and a little citrus but not overpowering.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose on this one. bread, caramel then the spicy hops kick in with some piney resin. Very well done. This IPA is balanced but has a very nice hop profile that lingers in a good way. The alcohol (7.2%) is well hidden.
PALATE: full bodied, lighter carbonation, creamy.
OVERALL: I enjoyed this beer and will drink it again. This is my first beer from this brewery. I've heard lots of good things and will try more of their beers in the future for sure.

In a can-shaped glass.
A- Amber body, some cloudiness and no carbonation visible. Foamy light head that plateaus and leaves lots of lace.
S- Orange citrus and sweet caramel plus subtle pineyness.
T- Mellow citrus and a good dose of caramel. Pineyness is there too. The nose and tongue are very consistent. But good.
M- This beer is bitter, but not overwhelming. Average carbonation. Medium-bodied and with a hint of booziness.
Overall, a top-notch IPA and one that can stand above the rest of the crowd.

A very nice IPA. The appearance was light orange with a head that lasted a while then left trails down the glass. The smell was really nice with a lot of floral and herb components. The taste was full of hops that left a very nice even taste that ended in an enjoyable crisp finish. The mouthfeel was also nice. For an IPA at seven percent, it was delightfully medium bodied with a refreshing amount of fizz. Would definitely recommend.
