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

A: 1/8" off-white head over filtered amber liquid with excellent clarity.

S: Pine, citrus and honey.

T: Slightly bitter throughout with the hop flavours of pine and especially citrus coming through. Quite nice, although for some reason I liked it better cold than when it warmed.

M: Medium to thin viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.

O: Very drinkable, I liked how balanced it was and the citrus profile.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light amber with 1/4 inch of white foam. Lots of lacing throughout. Strong grassy pine smell. Classic west coast IPA smell. Juicy hopped taste with long lasting bitter close. Really well balanced, tasty and smooth.

Another win from NBBC.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - yellowish orange clear beer with nice head and retention

Smell - A superb scent! Hops scream out of the glass pine and citrus!

Taste - Very flavorful and very hoppy but not too bitter.

Mouthfeel - full bodied and nice

Overall- A very nice American IPA that is flavorful yet fairly easy on the pallet.

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

Appearance is gold in color and clear.Smell is sweet hoppy. Mouthfeel is bitter on tongue and dry to the mouth, nice. Taste is sweet to the mouth and dry; this is a very nice tasting IPA. Good clean finsh. Overall this is a real impressive beer one we feel will only get better as we will have to have one more. Will go great with ribs or just a good old T-Bone.
