look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours an amber honey deep orange, with a huge amount of head/lacing. Initial pour left a lingering two and a half finger head around the glass that doesn't look like it's fading anytime soon.
Aroma is really fresh with slot of fruity hoppiness, very earthy with some grapefruit flying through. Slight detection of a Carmel malty nose.
Sweet, caramel malts up front, and finishes with a strong hoppy bitterness. Pretty balanced, and the caramel blends magically with the hoppy bitterness. The hops aren't overpowering, just a little punch.
Mouthfeel is mild, but a thick feel. I feel like this is thicker then some of the other IPAs, and it really is just an overall well made brew.
