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

12 oz. can poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours an amber-red color with a one-finger off-white head.

Smell: Interestingly caramel malt is the most prevalent smell here. There;s a very nice hop profile backing it up with pine, citrus, and some herbal qualities. Smells quite good, but not particularly like an IPA.

Taste: Once again, this does not seem like an IPA. There's definitely a strong hop presence with pine and herbal hops along with some citrus, but the caramel malt really takes over. Really more of a hoppy red than an IPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. Pretty clean.

Overall: I really like this beer. That being said, I probably wouldn't call it an IPA.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: pours a 1"+ off white head which recedes slowly, plenty of lacing. color is a somewhat cloudy copper, with some carbonation streaming.
Aroma: citrus is the dominate aroma. Also some pine and bread dough.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied, not much carbonation, and sticky. Finish is somewhat astringent. Flavor: hops are quite dominant. Bitter citrus rind, grapefruit, pine oil are present in the first taste and the finish. There is a brief interlude of sweetness in the middle with some yeasty roll and a slight caramel.
Overall: a decent IPA and representative of the style.
