3.23/5 rDev -22.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Pours an amber/darker yellow color. A little over a finger of head, slowly receding. I can immediately smell the beer even without putting my nose to the glass. Upon closer inspection, it is a very rich floral and hoppy smell, like other IPAs I've tried but more inviting. First sip; hops and more hops. I have mostly stuck to 'smoother' IPAs recently and this one is definitely anything but. After my initial shock, it develops a bit more complexity. Still hops most prominent in the mix, but also pine and maybe a little citrusy sweetness at the end. I feel the bitterness is overwhelming in this beer. Maybe it's just not my style but I think there are a number of others in the style I would reach for first. I'm actually a little disappointed, because the other two SN IPAs I have tried I really liked.

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
