look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

22oz poured into tulip. Pours hazy bright orange with a two finger head. Smell is tons of pine resin, citrus fruits, sweet hops, biscuit. Taste is lots of pine, lemon, melon,earthy, tons of west coast style hops but very balanced, not too bitter, no ral malt caricature. Mouthfeel is to be expected. This ipa has tons of pine and citrus. It's very drinkable and extremely delicious, reminds me of pliney IN THE RESPECT that it doesnt try to be an in your face hop bomb, its just so well balanced. glad I got to visit the brewery and bring this back to Columbus. Plus the label is awesome

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a foamy off-white head on top. Nice head retention, with sheets of lacing down the glass.

S: Some nice pine mixed with a little bit of floral hops. Faint grapefruit and orange rind. A bit of biscuity malt.

T: Nice citrus up front, some apricot and a bit of pineapple mixed with some pine. Definitely flowery, like the name implies.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Bitter finish.

O: Pretty solid IPA from CBC, would expect nothing less.
