3.8/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy burnt copper tone, with a frothy off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma is pretty straight forward, with fresh hops and a hint of buttery malt. Taste is a sweet toasted malt up front, that is quickly overtaken by orange peel bitterness, and a crisp floral hop bite that hangs on through the finish. Hop flavor comes to the front more and more as the beer warms. Slick on the palate and quite tasty overall. Very nice APA!

4.21/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - Clear amber body with three fingers of light tan head. Incredible amount of retention and lots of nice lacing to go with it.

S - Lots of yeasty dough, citrus hops, cherry and sweet caramel.

T - Tangy fruitiness upfront with slight Belgian style yeast profile. Floral and citrus hops wash in and leave the aftertaste dry and bitter. Malts are strong upfront but recede quickly.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat sticky but leaves a clean mouthfeel behind.

O - Great brew. Lot's of interesting flavors and really well balanced. Just not sure it's worth the $7.99. But I could see picking this up again.

4.11/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance is a bright, transparent rust orange and pours a fluffy off-white+pink head.

Smells of citrus, floral, and slightly spicy.

Tastes slightly of pineapple, caramel, and spicy hops.

Mouthfeel is a well balance between malt and hop, slightly spicy up front with a bitter, then sweet finish.

Overall, a good IPA but nothing spectacular.
