look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Thanks to baconsausage for this brew! 12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A. Nice Dark orange color with 1.5 inch fluffy head that dissapates quickly,nice sticky lacing on the glass. Good carbonation.

S. Pine, slight citrus not very strong smelling some bread and grains. I'm not getting much else.

T. Nice bitter hop citrisy lemon taste and some pine,has a nice earthy tone to it.Bitter aftertaste that lingers.

M. Mouthfeel is kind of light,
smooth,corbonation is gone after about five minutes after pouring.

D. I could drink alot of these, very easy drinking I've had alot of better IPA's but this is a solid brew worth trying.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hoppy, some citrus. Taste is milder than the smell. Some hop bitterness, a touch of citrus, light pine as well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good but unspectacular beer.

3.89/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a nice light amber brown with half an inch of cream colored head that faded into wisps, a medium collar and very good lacing. Aroma is toasty/bready malt, with faint pint and citrus hops. Taste is appropriately bitter, with the bready malt taking main stage. There's some earthy and piney hops behind the big malt presence. Nice bitter bite on the tongue, medium body and med-high carbonation.
