look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass from a twelve ounce bottle.

A great appearance to start, with a finger-thick head that's both frothy and chewy-looking. As the head dissipates, it leaves lots of sticky lacing, but some head persists and remains above the liquid. The liquid is golden with amber hues and shows some moderate carbonation. The beer looks filtered, yet still slightly cloudy.

I get lots of citrus on the nose with hints of pine. The beer smells sweet and semi-malty as well. Almost smells like there's an orange just sitting in there.

The taste follows the nose pretty faithfully. The beer is citrusy and bready. I get a lot of grapefruit peel. There's not as much flavor complexity as I'd expect, but this may have to do with freshness.

This beer is crisp, light and easy-drinking for an IPA. There is an intensely dry and bitter finish, but the beer starts creamier and with a thick mouthfeel. Very impressive in this regard.

Overall, a delicious IPA and one easily accessible. Of course, I have La Cumbre Elevated at my disposal so that one will always have my heart. But this is nice for comparison and to drink every once in a blue.
