look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-Peach colored...nice lace on the glass as I drink

S-Nice big hop aroma...tropical fruits(light mango), citrus (tangerines, grapefruit), and pine...very hop forward....reminds me of some of the IPA's from California

T-Again hop forward....good tight bitterness to this as the pine punch is strong...also good citrus (grapefruit, tangerines) flavor as well...resiny hop bill...pine not as strong as on the nose but evident....the malt (thinking caramel) is definitely in the background ..

M-Perfect body and carbonation...dry on the finish with a good hop bite.

O-If you like IPA's that leave a hop impression this one would be for you. A lot of unsweetened grapefruit on the finish...never borders on hop juice as the malt backing adds just enough to balance a little.

I imagine some will love this to death. I personally like a sweeter citrus take on the hops but can appreciate this for what it is....a quality, well made IPA that could fit nicely in California. They cite seven hop varieties on the bottle but don't name them. Would guess Chinook, and Amarillo are apart of it for sure..

****Just bumped scores up a little...had Saga immediately after this and Saga did not hold up to this one....am doing a six IPA blind taster this weekend with Saga, Hop Dish, Two-Hearted, O'Dell and a couple others to further evaluate its greatness***
