look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Nice, clear apricot gold body. Pillowy white head with great retention and lace.

S - A shade light. Woody hops, touch of copper, and honey.

T - Resiny bitter hops dry out the opening and center of the profile. Green grass and lemon zest on the backend with a dry woody finish.

M - Light, crisp medium body.

O - Not bad at all. One of the drier IPA's I've had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into 8 oz glass ( hotel). Appearance is golden and clear with creamy solid head that falls to puddle of foam with some lacing. Smell is very piney and earthy. Label indicates Citra, Simcoe and one other hops variety. Not that experienced with IPAs but the pine smell is really forward. T- pineapple and citrus sweetness followed by malt backbone in the middle and very good hops tartness on the finish.
M- medium bodied feel with good carbonation tingle on the tongue.
O- I really liked the smell of this ale. It brings to mind the big outdoors. Probably good to drink outdoors or while camping. Very refreshing and drinkable. Has the lingering tangy bitterness I like in this style.
