4.13/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bomber purchased at Green's in Columbia, SC, into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Decent retention with some sticky lacing.
Smell is of citrus and pine. I can tell from the scent that this is an aggressively hopped beer. Also some very light scent of sweet malt.
Taste is all hops, but not really bitter at all, which is quite a surprise. Nice dry finish.
Pleasant mouthfeel. Nice and creamy, medium body with good carbonation. The hops were not overly slick or oily, and like I stated before, the bitterness doesn't dominate.
This is just a damn fine IPA.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy golden yellow color and a decently foamy white head. Has a very nice hoppy floral aroma. Taste is kind of sweet up front, dominated by floral notes with touches of citrus. The finish is a surprising amount of bitterness that lingers a while. The beer has a nice full body feel with some carbonation. This is very refreshing and enjoyable.

4.39/5 rDev +3.5%

Light amber to brown in color. A minuscule bit of white head partially covers the top of the beer. A bit hazy with Brussels lacing. Incredibly enticing aroma of pine like hops reminiscent of pineapple greets me. The mouth is a little sticky and the bitterness prickles my tongue. When I take a sip I get a short but sharp burst of pine like hops and then some light malt to back it up. I get a nice gentle bitter fade.
