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

Appearance: amber/copper color with a medium amount of head on top - none leaves on side of glass (unusual of IPAs)

Smell: strange malt smell, very hoppy. citrus and a little pine smell to it

Taste: still smells the pine and citrus flavors. not the best tasting ipa, but decent enough to get more for later.

Drinkability: hard to find beer, well worth the trip

12 ounce can - $1.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, amber-hued body with a two finger-high head of near white foam.

Smell: Fresh citrus zest, notably strong resinous pine, with some lesser floral tones. Some pale, caramel malts showing beyond the hop aromas.

Taste: Bready pale malts sweetened up with a handful of crushed sugar cookies. Floral hops, but also fairly, firmly resinous, with some tangerine oil included. Medium bitterness throughout. Leisurely bitter, resinous finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, basic American IPA.

Orange to light copper in color with a rocky white head. Floral and citrus hop aromas that will clear out your sinuses. You could wash your hair with this stuff and you'd smell like you used Herbal Essences. Thick mouthfeel; not a particularly high level of carbonation. A flash of caramel-like malt is quickly doused with buckets of hops, which carry you into the finish and beyond.

I definitely enjoy a good IPA, but this is a little unbalanced for my liking. I understand that the whole hop bonanza thing is the effect they were aiming for, and there's nothing wrong with that...just know what you're getting into before you drink this one. A great pick for the true hopheads.
