A: clear; bronze in color; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to an uneven cap; nice lacing;

S: more sourness that anything else; a little caramel malt in the background;

T: unfortunately, it follows the nose; maybe a bad bottle?

M: a little thin; moderately carbonated;

O: no date, so no way of knowing how old this is; no hop aroma or flavor; with the sourness, I doubt I would try this again;

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured beer out of the growler into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nice citrus hops followed by caramel and bready malts.

Taste: Grapefruit and orange flavors balanced by the caramel and bready malts. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, drinkable, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and easy to drink.

Overall: A nice IPA that I look forward to drinking more of from the brewery. Such a drinkable and enjoyable IPA.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a nonic tumbler. Pours a pretty clear golden copper color with 2.5 fingers of creamy white head, good retention and nice lacing. Fine looking brew.

Smells pretty citric hoppy. Lemon in particular. A bit of pale malt. Nice but not exciting.

Tastes good- very drinkable. Malts are pretty evenly balanced with the hops (for an IPA). Pale malt sweetness washes over the palate first, followed by a round hop-tang. Get more lemon towards the end and finishes relatively dry.

Mouthfeel is very nice- medium light body with light to moderate carbonation. Goes down pretty easy and very refreshing. Not bad for 4.49. Not the best IPA but good enough to drink for sure.
