4.25/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- Really good looking ipa with a hazy orange amber color, similar to SN Celebration. Pours a two finger fluffy/foamy head.

Aroma- Lots of pine and a little bit of mint. Citrus and a sweet bready malt hide in the background as well.

Taste- Once again there alot of pine and citrus in the initial flavor that creates a mild bitterness upfront. The pine is quickly balanced by a mix of caramel and bread malt, which subdues any bitterness there was and provides a smooth finish.

Feel- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, and smooth in the finish.

Overall- This surprised me on two levels. One is that I'm not huge on pine ipas usually but this is very nice and well balanced so the pine is overly bitter or minty (although the nose indicated otherwise). Second surprise was the score of 83. It's definitely better than that. This is really well balanced and one I'll be looking for again.

A: 4.25 - Lovely clear mahogany color with a dense 3 quarters inch head atop it.
S: 4.0 - Resiny, earthy hops with a light bread-crust malt scent.
T: 4.0 - High bitterness with a sharp piney hop flavor. Malt is ... more nutty than in the nose. In any case, nice interplay between hops and malt. Clean yeast-wise, with a dry finish.
M: 3.75 - Medium body, neutral texture.
O: 4.0 - Very drinkable IPA. Like the malt a lot. It's a little too strong to be a quaffing, session beer, but it's a good after-dinner drink.
