4.6/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: a clean dark orange with moderate number of bubbles rising from glass. thick off white head which resides over about a minute to a thin layer leaving white lacing.

S: pine notes are the major factor for me in this one. and hops, quit a powerful scent lingering around this beer, bitterness awaits!

T: hops, hops, hops! as the smell suggests there is plenty to go around. and they compliment everything that's happening in this beer. front pallet is quite overwhelmed but balanced as the bitterness calms down and accompanied by a slight strawy taste with big notes of citrus. bitterness still lingers at the end but much more relaxed. some slight malt feel to help keep this one tame. amazing!

M: quite light in the mouth and as strange as it sounds, a pleasant harshness relating to the bite of this beer. extremely session-able for a 2IPA.

O: this is not the first time ive had this beer and let me tell you it wont be the last. my favourite beer that is easily accessible! i recommend this beer for any ipa fan but perhaps not for those who are not a fan of some bite!
