look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy peach color with bright orange highlights and a wispy beige head.
Smell: The nose is boozy up front with copious amounts of floral hops along with rich sweet caramel malts, grapefruit, and a hint of eucalyptus.
Taste: The flavor profile starts out innocent enough with a smoov dose of caramel malts. Grapefruit and piny hops quietly take over, lingering in the mid-palate. The finish is where this IPA comes into its own. Bitter grapefruit, zesty orange, lemon, and pine explodes followed by a shot of warming alcohol.
Mouthfeel: It's medium-bodied, oily, and lively with loads of carbonation.
Drinkability: This is a taxing beer. The ABV is quite apparent and it's aggressive all-round, yet it's just so delicious, it deserves a high score.

Small head, disapated quickly. Bunch of white stuff from the rim to the bottom of the glass after all the beer was gone.
Faint smell of a pine needle when you snap it between your fingers.
Leaves a film on your lips like chapstick. That was cool.
Don't really want to write any more words. Just trying to make quota.
Serving type: on-tap
