look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
On tap-Poured out a dark yellow or amber with a small quickly dissappearing head.The aromas of this IPA are of pine,citrus and of course hops.The flavor is also mega hopped influenced as well as some citrus,perhaps even lemon.This is not my favorite style,so it is hard to be fair,buts I guess it is ok.
Serving type: on-tap

3.41/5 rDev -16.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: pours a golden orange color. with a generous 2 plus finger white foamy head that fades at a decent rate and leaves a small lacing behind. good clarity.
Smell: strong crystal/caramel malt sweetness. hops are decently strong with some pine, resin and a smaller amount of citrus.
Taste: opens with a strong sweetness from the crystal and caramel malts. afterwards there is some bitterness coming in with flavors of pine and resin. overall it comes off slightly grassy.
Mouthfeel: medium to lighter body. some lingering bitterness, a touch too sweet to me.
Overall: well before its printed freshness date but still a little lacking in the hops. too strong and sweet malts. also the grassiness I found in the taste throws me off a bit.
Serving type: bottle
