4.33/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
S – Citrus fruit and rind, pine and sugary malts.
A – Clear, copper/orange with a full 2 inch off-white fluffy head with remarkable lacing all the way down the glass to the last sip.
T – Distinct juicy orange flavor with other citrus fruits and rind. A very passive bitterness is present that supports the malt backbone but is dwarfed by the impressive flavorful hops. Hints of pine and mint emerge from middle to end. Candy-like malt sweetness emerges as the beer warms with not even a hint of alcohol. Finishes relatively dry with a dose of orange zest in the finish.
M – Moderately bodied. Medium carbonation.
O – An extremely well-crafted beer. Very refreshing and drinkable for 7.2% and immensely flavorful without being over malty or bitter for an IPA. Would definitely have again and then again.

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.
Serving type: can
