look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pour is nice coppery orange. Nice and hazy (unfiltered). Good head follows the pour, nice white bubbles.

Smell hits you as soon as the cap comes off. Nice piney, with hints of peaches and some other tropical fruits. The grapefruity/ citrusy hops linger in the background. Biscuity yeast is in there too. This smells sooo good.

Nice balanced flavor. Not as fruity tasting as it smells, more of the pine and bitterness, with just a touch of citrus bite. Can taste the biscuit flavored on the tongue. Finishes super dry. The fruit makes another appearance in the after taste.

Wow, that's all I can say. Balanced to the T, what a great IPA. The smell is what made it for me, and the taste does not disappoint.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Clear orange-amber with a tan head.

Smell: Mango cam at me first followed by floral hops. Then peach and grapefruit.

Taste: Floral hops is first followed by the mango mango. Peach and grapefruit on the end.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, slightly coarse yet still smooth. Has a very nice light dry finish.

Overall: I am totally blown away by this IPA! The citrus and hops are so well balanced and flavorful. Medium bodied. Just an oustanding brew. Cheers.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - nice orange amber rich color, nothing surprising or original, but something very hearty about a glass full

Smell - again, unoriginal for an IPA, but very nice scent, mild explosions of citrus and pine

Taste - the deal breaker. Delicious. Alcohol is not overpowering, flavor is just beautiful. Everything works so well together, provides a smooth taste and great drinkability. For an IPA, unusually brings me to a summer daydream, possibly due to the refreshing factor - which is high

Mouthfeel - again, top notch. Smooth, drinkable, low carbonation. All of the traits of an IPA. Get one.
