4.65/5 rDev +13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Nice clear amber color, with a shallow white/off-white head that dissipated quickly in a pint glass. Sticky caramel aromas, mixed with some subtle hints of citrus and hops. A beautifully balanced IPA, with an initial hit of sweet toffee and caramel flavors followed immediately by bracing hops and grapefruit that cling to your teeth. With the perfect amount of carbonation to provide some vibrancy and mouthfeel, this is a delicious and very drinkable IPA.

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.
