look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a Pint Glass.

A - Pours a hazy dark gold with a fluffy white head that settles to a generous cap, leaving behind rings of lacing.
S - Fresh and pungent floral hop aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, pine resin, and mandarin orange peel with a very light malt backbone.
T - Moderate hop flavors of grapefruit, pine resin, orange peel, and fresh-cut grass with a touch of sweet biscuit malt and a fairly long lasting bitter finish. Very nicely balanced, and easily one of the most drinkable IPAs on the market.
M - Smooth and crisp, with a medium body and great carbonation.
O - One of my go-to IPAs, especially when it's this fresh. Just a great, unpretentious year-round brew!

This one of my go to IPA's that is a staple in my fridge.

A- rich copper with a two finger head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing behind.

S- smells of fresh grassy, piney hops and sweet malt

T- Starts off with some nice piney, floral, citrus hops and the sweet caramel and the typical NB biscuity malt follows and those hops linger for some time.

M- medium body with smooth carbonation.

O- A great all round American IPA for hop heads after some fresh piney hops.
