4.56/5  rDev +21%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Super clear amber color. Poured a thick, foamy two finger head that quickly dissipated. Nice lacing.

Smell: Orange, tropical fruit, grapefruit, lemon, pine, and a little dank.

Taste: Piney hops and orange up front, followed by grapefruit, citrus rind, earthy spice, and bigger pine over a nice malt backbone. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Gets better as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Light with crisp carbonation. Slightly oily, bitter finish.

Overall: This was a super refreshing IPA. Nothing too overpowering and nicely balanced. Dangerously sessionable. This would probably be the perfect bridge for someone wanting to get into IPAs. I foresee this beer taking up too much space in my fridge for sure.

Serving type: bottle
