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

Appearance: Arrives with a copper color and a nice head that leaves a respectable amount of lacing behind

Smell: Rather balanced with a good malt backbone and some earthy/piney hops

Taste: A good fruity, caramel base complemented by piney and earthy hops; bitter, almost in an English way, but nicely balanced in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A pleasant IPA that goes down well

Thanks to Kevin for this new to me beer

A - Great color and head. The main event with the appearance is the awesome stickage with tons of it sticking to the glass and a thin cap of head crowning the top of the brew.

S - Big tropical fruits hitting, mostly pineapple and mango. Slight herby notes alomst like cilantro. There is also a pretty big butter-y presence. Also a slight nutty presence come in and out

T - Really nice balance with some strong malts rounding out the big hops. Really solid bitterness, but not enough to throw it off. Nice and clean finish with some pine finally showing up. Just solid, nothing too crazy

M - Really nice and light, but there is a kind of buttery feel to it that is not that pleasant

Hop DIsh pours a dark golden color, with a nice large lacing head. Their are floral notes, but a nice golden malty aroma also comes through. The taste has a strong crisp malty taste, with floral notes coming through as well. A very well balanced IPA. Overall a very drinkable enjoyable and balanced IPA.

This beer pours a hazy dark orange color. The head is a half an inch in height, and recedes quickly into sparse lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit, pine and tangerines. It is fairly aromatic, but it smells uninspired to me. I've smelled a lot of IPAs like this one, and most of them didn't do much for me. The taste is similar to the aroma, and has a vrry subdued bittrrness. So subdued, in fact, that most modern day APAs have a more pronounced bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation for the style. Overall, this isn't the IPA for me. I can't see myself drinking this again.
