3.5/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This brew pours an opaque golden color with a small one finger head and moderate lacing.

The smell is strong with pine and citrus hops, the pine dominates.

The taste is mostly pine hops with a malt backbone. There is a pine aftertaste left and hop oil left in the mouth after swallowing.

The mouthfeel is thick and bready; there is a slight bite due to the carbonation.

Overall this is not a bad IPA but it is plain, not complex. The taste is mostly pine and malt, not bad but a little more variety in the taste would be nice.
