4.15/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Paid around $1.79 for a single at Jungle Jim's...

The beer pours a slightly hazy and amber colored base with a frothy white head, nice head retention and a few specs of lacing on the glass. The aroma is a double dose of sweet hops with a lemony/orange/citrus after-smell.

The taste has a medium body, silky smooth thanks to the head with a rush of lemon and floral hops, a touch of malt and a dry aftertaste that leaves you with a craving for more. Great mouthfeel because of the frothy head and very drinkable at a resounding 7.2% abv that does not hint alcohol anywhere.

Final Thought: Excellent IPA from an excellent brewery, you won't be disappointed!

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.
