4.46/5 rDev +22.5%
Copper color, touch of haze. Lots of small bubbles rising to the top. Thick off-white rocky head.
Citrusy, resin, spicy, herbal, sweet bread, toffee, some fruity.
Citrus, spicy, herbal, resin, a little piney. Deep malt character, mainly caramel-toffee. Finish is bitter, semi-dry, smooth. Body is medium, slight creamy texture, smooth.
It's an outstanding IPA. Very well balance.

2.96/5 rDev -18.7%
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.

4/5 rDev +9.9%
Pours a clear, copper color with a tight, white that leaves chunks of lacing.
Smells of earthy and floral hops with some pine on the backend with some toasted notes.
Tastes of the floral and earthy hops with a fairly big malt backbone. Malts lead off with toasted notes leading to some caramel sweetness and syrupy notes. This leads into a bit of citrus and pine, but then bigger earthy and floral notes come in. Leans toward the sweet side and finishes that way.
Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a good IPA, however, it is malt heavy for the style.
