3.53/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Served at ~45 degrees from bottle poured into clean glass.

A: Orangish/Copper nice head and long lasting lacing and very clear.

S: Underwhelming aroma. Not a bad aroma, just not easy to pick up. Most prominent aroma is the pine aroma of the hops. There is a slight citrus scent to the beer most likely from the citra hops used.

T: Taste is intially hit with the aromas of citrus and pine but soon subsides into a bitter punch that falls away to a nice pine and grapefruit finish that last long. Good finish on this brew.

M: Medium to light-medium bodied. Smooth, likely due to magnum and crystal hops. Aftertaste leave astringency in the mouth, perhaps just a little more than I like.

Overall:

Good, solid IPA with a nice bitter punch, citrus and pine aromas and flavors but yet smooth and very drinkable.
