4.72/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This guy pours beautifully with a fluffy white head of medium build that slides down the side of the glass, leaving little behind. Lovely amber color. The bubbles are there to be seen but not blatant.

When you first smell this guy it is a kick you in the nose punk that tries to bully you away. But when you dare come back, you notice the hops and the citrus in there. Both distinct and both inviting and neither like your typical beer. Very unique and it gets you fired up for that first sip.

I've never tasted hops quite this good. Obvious, blatant and by no means overdone. These are quality hops that taste slightly bitter but more smooth and full of character. There is just enough sweetness to offset the hops and this makes the IPA one of the best I've ever had. I want another. Unreal.

4.38/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle into tulip glass.

A - Bright clear amber with a thick white head.

S - Pleasant hop aroma. Pine, tropical fruit, spicy hops.

T - Strong hop flavor and bitterness. Piney, spicy, and herbal hops. Delicious. Bready caramel malt lends a bit of sweetness.

M - Smooth, crisp, medium bodied. Somewhat creamy.

O - An all around exceptional IPA. The hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness level are all quite pleasing.
