Pours a nice orangey straw color, with a little haze. The head is nice with some creaminess to it. Smell is pretty classic american hoppiness; citrus, pine, etc. It's not really strong, but it's quite nice! The taste doesn't quite live up to the smell though. It's good, but the hops just aren't there the way I wish they were and it's maybe a tad on the bitter side too. Mouthfeel is good in all respects. Overall, this is a really good ipa and I'd be happy to drink it any time, but I feel like it could be easily tweaked a bit to make it better. Just a little more hop forwardness in the taste to match the smell. Oh well, it's probably a good thing that every brewer doesn't think exactly the same way I do...

22 oz. bottle from Mammoth Liquor. Lots of caramel in the aroma with some citrus hops, light mango, and faint pineapple. It pours slightly hazy amber with a small white head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a light watery caramel fruitiness. Almost all the flavor comes in the finish with an increased caramel presence and a moderate dose of grapefruit hoppiness. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and light carbonation. Awesome IPA!

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

Pours a clear amber color with a really tall frothy off white head. Head is as tall as the beer in the Alchemist glass I'm using.

Smells of juicy American hops, some orange citrus, some floral notes, a bit of bitter pine.

Taste is mostly sticky bitter piney hops, very little citrus. Strong malt backbone, a somewhat sweet bready character in the mouth but finishes mostly bitter.

Carbonation is really good with a full mouthfeel, very refreshing.

Not quite "outstanding" but definitely a really good IPA.

7.9/10
