4/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beautiful brownish amber color. Pours with a nice thick cream colored head, which lingers for a few minutes and leaves behind sticky lacing.

Smells sweet with a hoppy mossy scent in the back. The hops are definitely noticeable here, as with most IPAs.

Sweetness on the front end which isn't dominating or too weak. This turns into a resin-y bitterness, which lingers in the mouth for at least twenty to thirty seconds.

In terms of the mouthfeel, the beer is nicely carbonated with a smooth rounded texture. Very nicely done.

Overall Grade: B+/A-
