4.21/5 rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: A darker shade of amber in color. Clear. Forms a modest, thick-foamy head, but the retention is quite good as is the lacing.
S: Pleasant aroma. Rather hoppy. Moderately sweet, with notes of juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, and a bit of citrus pith. There are some pine notes in the mix, but the citrus dominates.
T: The taste is also quite nice. Starts with a light sugary sweetness, then turns juicy. Orange and mandarin first, then the more bitter and less sweet grapefruit second. Ends with a a bit more of the sweetness, before finishing with some light pine resin.
M: Medium bodied. Mild sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Appropriate carbonation.
O: A pretty good IPA. Nice balance between the hops and the bitterness. Complex enough to be interesting, but not so much that it hurts the drinkability.

4.04/5 rDev -0.2%

Poured from a 16oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass.
This beer pours an attractive orange-yellow with a little haziness. The huge head slowly dissipates to a nice lingering lacing all down the glass.
The smell is not extremely strong but initially hits with some tropical fruit, a hint of yeasty bread and maybe, a touch of caramel.
The taste is very bold. Piney hops blast you tongue along with some tingle from the carbonation. Then you pick yup some of the tropical fruits -- citrus, pineapple, maybe some mango. I get a bit of the sweet malt as well. Nice stuff going on here. The finish is all piney bitter.
The mouthfeel is slightly sticky with an appropriate amount of carbonation.
Overall, this certainly satisfies my hop-craving with a nice mix of flavors and a really decent balance. A really good brew.

A - poured into a pint glass. Poured a beautiful cloudy orange straw olor. Head was a monster 2 finger head. Little sediment very hazy the lacing on the IPA is amazing all the way down its leaving a heavy lace
S - a lot of pine and citrus mostly a lemony grapefruit, biscuity malt aroma and a crisp Bread Smell mmmm
T - Right off the bat pine pine and more pine and grapefruit towards the end I get the malt flavor.
M - a medium dry finish with little bitterness
O - I love this IPA it's a perfect harmony of sweet fruit flavors and bitterness. The malt blends really nicely and the bitterness is just perfect. Goes down easy and this might sound weird but my burps taste like grapefruit it's awesome lol
