4.35/5 rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Served cold and poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A vigorous pour produces 1.5 fingers of head that fights a long time to stay atop the beer, great holding power. A clear (almost looks filtered) orange color. Lacing down the glass is thick.
Smell: Strong citrus hop aromas, lots of grapefruit. A little malt detectable in the background, not too much though. Hop aromas are sweet and powerful.
Taste: The hops do not disappoint. I don't know the hop bill but I would suspect some American c-hops are at play here. A soft bready aftertaste from the malt, very nice balance for my liking.
Mouthfeel: More carbonated than average. A nice thickness in the mouthfeel but I wish it had left a thicker hoppy coating in my mouth, disappears quickly.
Overall: This is a delicious beer. Try as I might, I have trouble finding very many faults. Clearly deserves a place in the upper echelon of American IPAs.

4.13/5 rDev +0.7%

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger cap of a pure white color. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a bready malt smell with some notes of graininess mixed within. Along with the bready smells are some nice earthy and piney smells as well as some sweeter aromas. The sweet aromas are mainly of a fruit nature with some pear, orange, and a little bit of a tropical fruit smell of mango.
Taste – The taste begins bitter bite right from the start with a nice earthy flavor mixed with some grapefruit hop as well. Along with the bitter hop are some nice bready and sweeter tangerine and mango flavors that end up balancing the hop nicely with the sweeter and malty flavors creating a base taste that lasts throughout the flavor profile. As the taste advances further, more hop flavors come to the tongue with some more earthy tastes as well as a resinous pine. While these increases in hop flavors come, the grapefruit mellows some and a bit of a doughy and caramel flavor take its place. This creates a smoother taste at the end of the tongue, and when mixed with the nice hop profile leaves a rather pleasant “dank hop” flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the mix of bready and hoppy flavors the thicker body is fantastic as it accentuates these flavors wonderfully all while the higher carbonation level keeps it quite refreshing.
Overall – A very tasty and nicely malty and hoppy IPA. Quite nice.
