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

A: Pours a lightly hazy orange color. The off-white head has a faint orange tint and a fairly dense, somewhat rocky texture. Retention is good, and wispy strands of sticky lacing cling to the glass nicely.

S: Bready and crackery notes up front, with some light caramel-drizzled character. Citric hops are prominent, with orange (rind, oil, and pith) standing out. A bit lemony as well, with some mild fruity esters in the background. Soft alcohol and mineral character is also present in the nose.

T: Sourdough and crackery malt flavor initially. Light caramel sweetness pops up, but doesn't stay long. Hop bitterness is strong and focused, fading gently into a long finish. Citric (mostly orange, with some light lemon) flavor is notable. A soft fruity and mineral flavor also persists into the finish, coupled with some modest alcohol bite.

M: Medium body. Carbonation is prickly and pleasant without going overboard. Aggressive hopping leads to a very dry, nearly bracing finish. A faint alcoholic warmth is also present.

D: This is a very enjoyable IPA, with a characteristically American citric hop personality. I enjoyed some of the secondary flavor characteristics, which to me included mineral and fruity (light tropical and orchard notes). Definitely more hoppy than balanced, but it's a welcome IPA from a reliable brewery.
