3.58/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Hazy, golden-orange color with one finger of head that fades slowly with thick lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malt, floral hops, some grassy earthyness, a little pine
Taste: Just a flash of creamy malt sweetness, then a rush of strong, piney bitterness. Some sweetness reappears on the the back end, but that trails off in the lingering, bitter finish. There is a definite green hop, slightly harsh quality to the finish which boarders on unpleasant.
The Rest: A decent IPA lacking in the balance department. Not enough else going on to balance out the massive hop bill. Drinkablity suffers a bit from the harsh finish as well.
Serving type: bottle

3.89/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
16 oz. pint poured on tap at the brewery; unknown brewing/bottling date; drank over 30 minutes
A: 2/3 - yellow-orange coloration; initial frothy white head settles into a subtle glass lacing; medium alcohol legs
S: 9/12 - some moderate citrus and pine aroma; distinct malt character - toasty, bready, doughy; some mild alcohol notes as well
T: 15/20 - moderate bitterness up front that opens up for a balanced hop and malt battle - some grapefruit, pine and resiny characters - with some malt character and alcohols; the malt character continues to develop in the middle of the mouth; finishes generally dry and inviting
M: 4/5 - light-to-moderate body, moderate carbonation, some alcohol presence but not fullness
O: 8/10 - don't think that this is a 90+ beer but it's a solid IPA for those who like balance in their IPAs; for $5/pint at the brewery, the price point is right too
TOTAL - 38/50
Serving type: on-tap
