Had fresh on tap. Looks decent. Smell is probably one of the best IPAs I have ever smelled. Floral fruity hoppy goodness. Tastes great. Just enough sweetness. Blossoms in your mouth. One of the best IPAs I've ever had. Up there with 90 minute IPA and Jai Alai. If you find it, drink it.

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

Appearance: yellowish orang color. a finger of a white head that fades slowly and leaves a little bit of a lacing behind. some haze but no where near opaque.

Smell: mostly citrus hops and crystal malts. some other hoppy aromas, mainly lemon

Taste: opens with a short burst of crystal. quickly taken away by hops. somewhat tropical, fairly citrusy and very lemony. i don't dig the lemon bread quality of the mixture

Mouthfeel: fairly light and some bitterness, but not a resin, more of a lemon bread sweet bitterness.

Overall: no doubt its a well brewed and well received beer. but the lemony hops just make for a mixture I don't dig in an IPA

Pours unfiltered gold/orange with a bit of yeasty chunks. Forms a two finger soapy cap of white with good retention and scattered lacing.

Caramel sweetness and white bread with dampened oatmeal. High pitching grapefruit pith bitterness and bright, soapy pine and grasses. Moderate strength with a mild whiff of alcohol.

Thin cracker-like malt with some bready sweetness, a little thin to be tasked with balancing out all these hops. Bright and floral, the nose translates right into the hops grapefruit pith and pine resin, variety provided by additional bright citrus and dried grasses. Bitterness is rather high with the finish crackling with raw grains and pine hops, scrubbing and clean like a good lager.

Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Alcohol is detectable and complements the beer. Notable bitterness and very clean and dry.

A very bright and clean IPA, punches you in the mouth, bitterness is turned up a few notches similar to Southern Tier 2XIPA. Hop fix is well satisfied and I took this one down way too quickly.
