4.3/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a rich copper color with a thick sticky head that clings to the glass.

S: Juicy hop aroma with hints of citrus and pine. Balanced out with some bready carmel on the nose.

T: Big punch of citrusy hops upfront. Ruby red grapefruit, mandarin oranges, and lemon zest dominate. Slight earthy notes and hints of piney resin. Malt is present as well with carmel notes and light bread. Light alcohol as it finishes.

M: For such big flavor and high ABV, this beer is a bit too light.

D: This is a very good IPA. BIg aroma and flavor, but this one is just a bit on the watery side for me. Still great though.

Serving type: bottle

A: burnt orange with a light tan head. Can't wait!

T: toffee and burnt malt. Also some floral notes, dank hops, pine, and caramel.

M: a nice sudsy feel. Medium and buttery.

O: not what I was expecting in a good way. It drinks like an English pale which is awesome. I like the malty touch.
