4.03/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Canned on 4/3
A: Pours a crisp, clear, golden color, with a faint and razor thin bubbly white head. What it lacks in head it makes up for with some nice sticky lacing.
S: Smell is sweet and slightly floral. Slightly tropical, but subdued and not in your face. Very reminiscent of Two Hearted to me. Light citrus notes and a little resinous.
T: Surprisingly bitter up front, with very little of the sweet tropical citrus flavors. The nose was subtle, but the taste is even more subdued. A little piney with a sharp bitter bite.
M: Very crisp, with fine bubbly carbonation. Alcohol is hidden extremely well here. Light bodied and refreshing.
O: Extremely drinkable and refreshing IPA. Nothing in your face in terms of hop aroma or big flavor, but still quite pleasant. The only thing I'd like a little more of is a citrusy hop profile in the flavor, but I'm just nitpicking at that point.

4/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
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.
