look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and tons of effervescence. There are also a few hop bits floating around in there ... nice. Head is a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam. An attractive beer!

Smell: rich aroma with a nice malty base and loads of piney hop character. There's some nice grapefruit and a good earthiness mixed in there as well. Quite good indeed.

Taste: oh, wow, this is good. Rich maltiness which is sweet but not too sweet, plus the piney/grapefruity flavor and a solid but not overdone bitterness. Surprisingly smooth for an IPA with this much flavor. Sha ZAM.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big, satisfying creaminess; especially good for an IPA.

Overall: a highly delicious beer. It is one of the most full-flavored IPAs I've ever had, and although the onslaught of flavor might prevent me from drinking it all day, it's still very quaffable. Kudos!
