3.75/5 rDev -8.5%
A: Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Brown center with a gold hue on the edges, a thick hazy texture, and a fluffy white 1-finger head. Fantastic lacing.
S: Very malt-forward aroma with a grass hop finish. Notes of toasted malts, hay, a touch of raw honey and some light pine needles.
T: Well-balanced between hops and malts, with a good caramel malt in-mouth flavor, and a light grassy-citrus finish. A dry aftertaste, but not overwhelmingly so. Notes of vanilla bean, dirt, lemon, nature, toasted oat bread.
M: A clean, if marginally chewy feel throughout, with a well-balanced body and a lightly dry afterfeel. Establishes a presence in the mouth, but unassertively so.
O: This is a great IPA for those being introduced to the style: inoffensive, but flavorful enough to get the picture. It's well-balanced and is clearly well-crafted.

4/5 rDev -2.4%
A: very clear; burnt orange in color; 1 finger white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice lacing;
S: muted; what was there was dank pine;
T: all pine from start to finish; the bitterness and the dankness built from mid-palate through the finish;
M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;
O: while I prefer IPAs with tropical fruit notes, this is really well done;
