4.6/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3

Pours a beautiful deep gold with a pillow like fluffy white lacey head that stays.
Smells is....Oooo so nice. Piney leafy aroma grassy citric goodness. Some sturdy malty smells in there too but overpowered in to submission by the wonderful hops.
This beer smells great!
taste... Nice hop punch right off the bat, lovey citrus earthy green but not chewy grainy. Nice toasty pale malt and crystal malt presence. Very big beer in taste, but not too thick in any way at the same time. they really dialed in the hops to malt ratio on this one to make a very fine American IPA.
Mouth feel is nice too...very soft pillow like carbonation, sits nice on the tongue and lets the tongue know it's still alive at the same time.
Drinkability is...eh..a bit too high of an ABV to make it a session beer for me. After 4 I would be pretty drunk.
I will definitely buy this again!

Notes: A wonderful AIPA! This is like perfect! A very impressive beer. Right up there with Titan IPA in my opinion

4.59/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served from 22 oz bottle into a pilsner glass.

A - Straw-colored, slightly hazy body. The head is thick and white. This is the way an IPA should look!

S - Orange, grass and spring flowers. Just a hint of pine and hemp.

T - Much like the smell, but more pungent. The orange and floral notes work in perfect harmony, with the semi-sweet crackery malt keeping everything in rhythm. The finish has more hoppy flavors and some assertive, but refreshing, bitterness.

M - A smooth mouthfeel to go with a medium body. Carbonation is near perfect.

O - A fantastic IPA. When enjoyed fresh, it's one of the best widely-distributed single IPAs around. If the six-pack weren't $12, this would be my go-to beer without a doubt.
