look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a deep copper color, finger of white head, nice lacing, very clear

Smell is not the most complex out there, but still nice, rye, bready malt, herbal hop notes, westcoast style pine and grapefruit, sweetness from the malt.

Taste is sweet caramel, spice from the rye is there but it is in the way of subtle pepper, grapefruit, bready malt, bittering pine

mouthfeel is medium, average carbonation, slight dry but at the same time a little sweet

Well its SN and its a IPA, not anything I would go to crazy over... But at 6.80 a 6 pack I certainly will grab a 6er every season. Good not great.
