look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: Pours an amber-orange color with a 1 and 1/2 inch head on top at first. This dies down to a 1/4 inch head, but lasts for the whole beer. A good lace follows along the sides.
S: Melon and tangerine fruitiness with backgrounds of citrus zest. Some grapefruit notes too. Caramel malts are definitely there too. Good aromas all around, but it finishes just a little lighter on the aroma than I like in my IPAs.
T: Some fruity flavors including orange, tangerine and grapefruit. Some grassiness as well. A little musk melon in the aftertaste. The caramel malts add a reasonable caramel flavor to the beer. They also seem to add just a touch of honey flavor. The bitterness is ample enough to balance everything out without being too harsh. Overall, all the flavors are nice, but nothing stands out too much compared to other IPAs.
M: Medium bodied. Pretty smooth and creamy for an IPA. Finishes a little too sweet for my tastes. I like my IPAs on the drier end. The carbonation is a little on the lighter end.
D: A pretty good IPA. Nothing epic, but nothing bad. I'd drink it again, but in a ever growing sea of great IPAs, this is in the middle of the pack.

12oz bottle in a tall pint glass.
A- Pours a copper-orange color with a 1-finger white head. The head's quick fade leaves decent lacing. It's hazy with visible carb bubbles and some other floaters.
S- Malty pale ale-like aroma with some pine. The hops make their way. Pretty crisp and fresh.
T- Malt and citrus hops. Some earthy pine.
M- Fresh and smooth. Good malt body, not too sweet . Lasting hop finish.
O- Pretty good drinking IPA that shows it's malts.
