Great beer overall. Super hop bomb,almost perfect for a NW hop lover. Great piney,citrus smell and feels good on the palette as well,nice and thick. High quality beer for the price. Would recommend to anyone that likes really hops,stay away if hops are not your gig...Cheers!

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a beer mug.

Appearance: Pours a four-finger cream colored head with a deep orange/golden body.

Smell: Smells like sweet grapefruit; pine and light grains.

Taste: Tastes like bitter hops; a deep, complex sort of bitterness that I don't usually go for.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is sort of thick and chewy; moderate carbonation.

Overall: Not bad. Not my kind of IPA personally, but definitely better than other IPAs I've had, too. Not bad.
