A pretty standard looking ipa. Maintained a nice head throughout with nice lacing
S smells like a west coast ipa. Pine hits you initially with some citrus notes in there too
T not a g.f. bomb by any means but sour grapefruit hits you in the middle of the mouth which to me is its strongest flavor. Nice bitterness up front, not too much, just right really. Nice lingering aftertaste which is a bit bready
M again pretty standard, wouldn't call it crisp but not tepid either. Not much malt. Overall the feel is moderate. Its very drinkable
O Ive had many great ipas/iipas/apas/whatever so maybe im a bit jaded, this is a really good beer but it wasn't as memorable to me as beers like zombie, heady or pliny. It is however quite well balanced and a beer id happily drink daily, i just don't think id go out of my way to get it. Happy i got to try it

A: This poured a hazy gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like apricots and grapefruit and dank pine.
T: It tasted like resin and unripe apricot. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Fizzy body.
D: This was a solid IPA with nice scent and taste, but weak body. The finish was fairly smooth, so it was easy to drink. Good brew, but not top tier.
