look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into tall pint glass, color is gold/copper, head is light tan, big, frothy, laces well.

Smell is mild, neutral pale malts, maybe some caramely sweetness, hops are fruity mostly, some piney/earthy bitterness noticed.

Taste is pretty solid, clean and crisp malt flavors, not overly sweet, hops are the right amount of bitterness for this size ipa, hardly notice its strength.

Mouthfeel is great for such a bit ipa, nicely drying, good tongue presence and mild sweeetness that lingers.

Overall, a very solid dipa style, clean malt flavors, not too sweet and hops are spot on for the bitterness.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: Poured alight amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of bitter earthy hops with dry caramel malt notes. Taste is also dominated by bitter hops notes with limited complexity and some lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. I thought there was too much malt and limited hops presence with a lacks of complexity in the hops profile.
