4.6/5  rDev +6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I don't normally expect much from little known breweries, but after having their autumn seasonal, I had to give this a try.

Appearance: Not an exceptional color, but the head pours 2+ inches and slowly recedes, leaving impressive lacing.

Smell: Very fresh, and all about the hops. Citrus, particularly grapefruit standing out. No alcohol in the smell.

Taste: Wow. This beer is powerful. The hops provide citrus flavors, namely pineapple and grapefruit. It is balanced? For an IPA, I guess, if hops being balanced by more hops makes sense (which with the hop trend currently going on, yes). This tastes great.

Mouthfeel; Really nice drinkability here with the thickness and carbonation just right. It finishes bitter and dry, but this is a hoppy beer.

Overall: I'm impressed. The flavors are great, the mouthfeel is great, the appearance is great, and the smell is great. I'd put this up there with 90 minute as one of the best IPAs available, and I'm especially impressed given that this is a small brewery. Bravo.
