A- bright amber that is not completly clear
S- great hop smell that makes me want to start drinking
T- nice balance of hops across the entire sip that leaves the hop profile on your palate
M- feels like a nice big ipa, which it is yet still very approachable and drinkable. Not watery not viscous, everything you want nothing you don't
O- overall this an excellent ipa. It profiles and showcases the hops very well, it's a big hoppy beer that leaves a nice hop aftertaste. Really enjoyed it.

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

a: Clear, orange tinted golden color; served with a small, foamy cap.

s: Rich, resinous, and pungent hop aromas of pithy grapefruit, pine, and maybe some pineapple. Plenty of caramel and biscuity malts for balance.

t: Quite the hop assault here. Resinous pine with some bitter grapefruit and a lingering, dank bitterness. The caramel comes through middle to late.

m: Sticky and surprisingly hefty.

o: Really nice IPA that just isn't quite top tier to me.

Poured into a snifter a rich yellow body with a small head. Down to tiny ring with a bit of lacing. Smell wasn't big but what was there was tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste was a very good balance of hop and malt. Here you get the grapefruit with very little bitterness and sweet caramel malt. Very pleasing to the palate with slight carbonation and very little bitterness. Solid brew that could be an everyday for me.
