Pored into a pint glass and this beer looks wonderful. It looks exactly as a good IPA should; nice fluffy white head, nice amber colour, lacing and small head sticks all the way to the last drop. And speaking of last drop, this is one of the most drinkable IPAs i have ever had. At 7.2% I could get in trouble with this one as it is not yet 2:00 p.m. and Im 1/4 done with my sixpack. The taste of this beer was wonderfully full and bitter. The only thing that took it down a notch was after the initial pore, the aroma left. Because smell and taste are so interrelated with no sweet aroma I did not get the sweet after taste that I love. Overall I would have this beer for any day of the week, or anytime of the day for that matter, and I suggest it to anyone looking for a hearty IPA.

4.29/5 rDev +3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Rich cooper color, clear. A creamy beige two finger head when poured; dies down relatively fast leaving an thin uneven coating of foam on the surface of the beer and lots of sticky lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell: Slightly sweet and citrusy. Mild aroma of malt. Smooth hops. An extremely slight pine scent. Nice and enticing.
Taste: Citrus (grapefruit. lemon) without being acidic. Delicious mild hoppy flavor for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Lots of mild carbonation. Ever so slight dry finish.
Overall: An excellent IPA. I would gladly drink this again. The perfect amount of hops with a delicious flavor. Refreshing.

12 oz from a $10 12 poured into a tulip glass. Born on 6/9/14
A - Ruby red with orange highlights, one finger head that recedes to thick lace ring.
S - Floral, grapefruit/citrus, biscuit
T - More of the same. Very flowery with moderate citrus, and a dry, bitter finish.
M - Perfect level of carbonation. The overall feel is a tad thin, but keeps it refreshing to balance the dry finish.
O - I had this a few months ago out of mix pack and was mildly dissapointed ( the 12 pack was 4-5 months and apparently was stored upside down). This was more in line with what I remembered. A good go to IPA that is a great value (esp at 10 fer 12)
