look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Packaged 02/04/14.
Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big four finger white head with good retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.
Smell: A bright, earthy, and juicy hop forward aroma with good hints of pine and citrus. Big upfront mix of floral, earthy, and herbal hops with hints of grass and spicy pine resin. Fruity citrus hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon, mango, and pineapple. Also some good hints of berries. Crisp pale malt background with hints of biscuit, grains, cracker, and yeast. Light hints of pepper. A very good and dank hoppy IPA aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma suggests, an earthy, spicy, and juicy hop forward taste with good notes of grass, pine, citrus, and spice. Upfront earthy and floral hops with good notes of grass. Spicy and dank notes of pine resin. Citrus hop notes of orange, grapefruit, lemon, pineapple, and mango. Notes of berries and some spicy pepper. Pale malt with some bready notes of biscuit, cracker, grains, and yeast. A very good hoppy taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Spicy, oily, and pretty drying. Pretty smooth.
Overall: A very good take on a IPA. Good mix of earthy and juicy hops with a nice unique note of berries.
