look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle into pint glass

Appearance - Hazed over and golden, nice sticky lacing left behind and solid head retention

Smell - Very grapefruity up front mingling with other various citrus notes, pine, some malty sweetness and dank fusel notes

Feel/Taste - Feel is medium bodied and super smooth, gentle carb, very drinkable. Taste follows nose - lots of hoppy grapefruit and citrus going on up front with a bitter bite that doesn't go overboard, some dank hop funk going on, trails off with a perfectly balancing caramel malt sweetness.

Overall - Just a superbly crafted IPA: a heavy dose of citrusy, fruity hops blend and balance deftly with caramely malts, while never getting the sensation of being too sweet. Extremely drinkable, this is a classic and a go-to.
