3.9/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A: A very clean looking beer. The color of this IPA is a light orange yellow and very translucent. The head is creamy and white and lasts a while. Beer leaves a little lacing while being consumed. Good Appearance.
S: The smell of this is straight citrus bittering hops. I can smell my favorite hop, Chinook, and this beer smells almost identical to the cones I pick fresh off the Chinook plants themselves. The smell is one-sided because that is all I am getting.
T: The flavor isn't as citrusy or bitter as the aroma would lead one to believe. The beer is very fruity and delicious. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and there is a very small hint of the malts.
M: Medium bodied and lightly carbonated. This feels pretty standard.
O: This is a pretty good IPA. The taste is fresher and cleaner than many and IPA's I have had and it is more straightforward. The specific hops seem easier to pick out. Pretty good stuff.

Poured into pint glass.
A - lite translucent golden straw color. 1 1/2 finger head that lingered a bit. Good lacing all the way down. A lotof bubbles
S - Right off the bat got a lot of fruity smells (grapefruit, pineapple, lemon) and piney hops. With a floral note. Toasted malt too
T - straight up grapefruit and piney taste just awesome. got the bitterness too, but just the right amount. Perfect mix of malt and hops.
M - medium light feel with a dry bubbly finish bitterness is perfecr
O - a great IPA imo. I have heard mixed things about this one but I really enjoyed it. I have been sticking with boulevards Mid West ipa but this is giving it a run for its money for sure!
