4.2/5 rDev +11.4%
Nice aroma on this one. Good sweet citrus notes. Lemon, grapefruit and a bit of pleasant peach. Not an acidic citrus aroma, but a more mellow, sweet sugary one. The flavor follows. A really good mellow citrus flavor, not dull by any means, but well put together. Sugary grapefruit juice, without the bite or strength of fresh grapefruit leads the hop profile. Lemon juice flavor follows. A solid caramel malt is next before a more bitter, pine finish. Nicely done, not huge flavor, but tasty... very drinkable IPA.

3.65/5 rDev -3.2%
22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass, pale golden bronze with a nice fluffy white one finger head. Couldn't really put my finger on the faint sweet aroma. The tastes of grassy herbal hops with a citrusy tang give way to a faint malty finish. Not very bitter as far as IPAs go. Carbonation is nearly perfect with a sticky sweet aftertaste.
