4.03/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

a nice, transparent bubble-laden amber color with a huge puffy white-tan head. looks good. smells good. citrusy, piney, hoppy. the usual smells from an ipa, but perhaps less intense with an added malt presence.

taste is good, but a little underwhelming. more malty than expected or desired (though it was apparent in the smell). a citrus fruit (esp. orange) sweetness up front. bitter hops through the middle and into the aftertaste, though late aftertaste is of sweet malts.

great mouthfeel and great drinkability. definitely sessionable on a hot summer night.

4.23/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
