4.24/5 rDev +11%
Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing.
Smell: A crisp, juicy, and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and grass. Citrus hop hints of grapefruit, orange peel, pineapple, lemon, mango, and melon. Earthy and floral hops with hints of pine resin and grass. Solid malt backing with hints of sweet caramel, biscuit, yeast, and cracker. A pretty solid aroma.
Taste: Like the smell indicates, a juicy and piney hop forward taste with good notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Upfront citrus hops with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, mango, and melon. Solid presence of earthy and floral hops with a dank presence of pine resin and grass. Good sweet malt backing with notes of caramel, grains, biscuit, and yeast. A pretty good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and pretty smooth with a drying finish.
Overall: A very solid West Coast style IPA. Good notes of citrus and pine with a solid malt presence.

4.25/5 rDev +11.3%
A: medium amber ale - crystal clear - centered into a pint, produced a towering head of off-white foam; some head retained throughout, lotsa lace down the glass
S: big aromas of citrus and pine - floral and bright; underscored by deeper notes of rich grain, wet with caramelized sugars
T: the hop bill asserts up front - Citra hop action brings the citric pith, suggesting dark grapefruit; pine resin chewiness and sweetness as hop and malt meld; hop-forward but the malts are present enough to support the bitterness
M: creamy and slick, but bittering as hell; some bitter pine-resin coat on the tongue leaves a "must-have-more" aftertaste; medium body, ample carbonation fuzz
O: whatta great little beer! From brewers I only knew for their "big boy" reserve series bottles comes a lean and tight IPA, crisp and easy-drinkin', full o' flavor with a nice clean aroma. I'm gonna go big here 'cuz I'm a fan of Citra hops. Regardless, grab some.

Serving glass: Poured from can into Imperial Pint.
Appearance: Cloudy amber-orange with nice, off-white head and good lacing.
Smell: Sharp citrus that is definitely Citra hops. Some pine, pineapple and a little bit dank as well.
Taste: Very hoppy and juicy, with grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Fairly dank, with notes of marijuana and onion. The finish is quite bitter and piney. I guess there are some malts under there but I wasn't really paying attention to them.
Feel: Moderate carbonation, medium to full that is fairly oily, very dry.
Overall: Excellent IPA that is very juicy and hoppy. Quite underrated IMO.
