Decent IPA. Pours a dark amber color with a foamy-off white head, leaving some lacing along the glass as you finish it. Smell is very hoppy, slightly sweet, a hint of fruit/orange peel. Carbonation for me was just a little too strong, which made it hard to want to have more than one of. Has a dry finish. Overall, this was just OK.

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

A-slightly hazy amber color with a decent white head and some lacing

S-citrus, malt, nice floral aromas, hints of pine

T-citrusy upfront with a solid malt backbone and floral notes, very light pine and mild bitter finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, thick and smooth mouthfeel

O-a decent IPA, but would prefer a bigger hop presence here, easy drinking beer

A: Lots of froth on this clear, golden brew. the large bubbles were quite sticky and clung to the glass quite a bit.

S: Are my senses dead? I honestly didn't get much here. Maybe a bit of yeast and grainy citrus.

T: The taste was pleasant and with no pine cone whatsoever. Very East Coast and subdued. Sure, the orange was in there, but this was played right down the middle.

M: Prickly and with lots of lacing.

O: I found this to be very drinkable, but ultimately not very memorable.
