4.2/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours an almost neon orange/peach body with thick head that stays until the end.
Smell is almsot a benchmark West Coast IPA. Very big punch of resiny pine and cut grass attack the nose leaving little room for much else. I like this, being a hophead, if you are not, stear clear of this. The taste is suprisingly balanced in comparision to the nose. Still very hoppy, but more of a citric quality, great grain and biscuit malt background make this easier to handle. Feel is a bit sticky, but right on for an IPA.
Very good and even though the ABV is a 6.9% I would like to call it sessionable from the ease of drink. Real good IPA here.
