look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

$13.99 for a six pack? here goes
I should probably point out that the last IPA I had recently was a Stone IPA so my palate is still primed for such a beast.
Looks like an IPA should for the most part. Not very much head forms and very little in the way of lacing on the glass. Clear amber body.
Scent is pleasant but not very powerful. Sweet citrus notes and tea scone notes that I have to dig my nose in to find.
More of those notes in the flavor coated with hop sprinkles. The feel of the beer is fizzy on the palate that leaves a coating of pine resins and grapefruit pucker. Thin bodied
Pretty enjoyable all in all when in need of a hop fix but I wouldn't bother at that price point again.

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

Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: a clear golden brew with a lot of carbonation in the pour but little head retention that left small spots of lacing.

Smells: a pine hop that has a sweet ring to it.

Tastes: a very hop forward IPA with a floral pine hop that bites my tongue in a great way. I enjoy the sweet citrus fruit flavors that are more apparent as it warms up a little.

Mouthfeel: there is a strong bitter bit from the generous amount of hops they infused in this ale but quite refreshing and smooth with the 7%.

Overall: Overall taste of this brew was right on the line between outstanding and very good.
