look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

The beer is poured a medium amber color, with a soft but sustainable head about two inches high, off white in color. A strong hoppy aroma bursts from the glass with a lot of complex fragrances. Those scents run the gamut from floral and grassy, to a citrus and lemon scents, then finishing with light pine fragrance. The taste comes out fairly well balanced, starting with a bread and malt flavor; then halfway the bitterness starts to grow. The bitterness brings grapefruit and other strong citrus flavors, then finishing with a grassy taste that lingers on the palate. A thin mouthfeel at the front of each taste, gradually gaining weight as it crosses the palate. The feel finishes slightly thinner than a medium bodied. Overall the color is inviting, the aroma is strong and impressive. The flavor was not what I expected, but that is not a bad thing. It is balanced with a hearty malt backbone. Though my expectation was more hop flavor, it still brought enough hops to the table. The feel maybe the only shortcoming, but it is still very drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an unfiltered orange with little foam and a bit of lace. Aroma of pungent grapefruit and leafy hop. In the taste, fairly bitter and coarse hoppy flavor and some citrus. Nice semi toasty malt backbone supports a good wet hop character. Nice bitterness and citrus. Medium bodied with a strong carbonation. Overall this is a solid IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
