Appearance: a deep orange almost red. Good clarity but not perfect. About a finger of off white head that leaves a lacing

Smell: hop medley, citrus, pine, floral. Some slight maltiness to back it up

Taste: starts off strong with the hops. I get notes I grapefruit and a floraly-pine taste. Malts are there on the back but in a small dose. The malts and the hops clash in a way that is slightly off to me

Mouthfeel: bitter. and light as far as ipas go.

Overall: a fine and well crafted beer but for some reason this (along with other dark horse beers) just don't do it for me as I know they do for others

12 oz. bottle bought in MA

A- Beautiful cloudy gold color with a finger white head. Looks great!

S - Floral hoppiness. Definitely the smell of a good IPA.

T - Good balanced flavor. Hops and malt and grapefruit.

M - Good on the paltae and has a nice aftertaste.

O - I picked this one up and reviewed it blind and like it quite a bit. I will get some more when I get the chance I think!
