look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5
A- Light gold with a thin white head that is stickier than would be expected from said thinness. A LOT of sediment that is fine as far as the beer goes, but adds nothing to the appearance.
S- Smell is dominated by hops, though the smell isn't all that strong. There is a maltiness apparent in the smell that balances, so far as they can be balanced, the hops.
T- Taste is equally hoppy all the way through, from beginning to end. A bitter hop aftertaste. Malts are apparent, though under-represented in relation to the hops, which could be good or bad. As an IPA, I enjoy the unbalance. Overall, there is not much complexity here---hops and malts.
M- On the lighter side of medium-bodied.
D- This is an all-around great beer, and it is made better by its drinkability. A 6 pack will be no problem here. Very enjoyable, very sessionable.
