look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

A: Pours a cloudy golden color with half-finger head.

S: Fruity, primarily citrusy/lemon hop aroma.

T: Hop flavors follow the aroma, with the addition of some caramel maltiness. Finish isn't overly bitter, but

M: Medium mouthfeel, nothing unexpected for an IPA. Good carbonation.

O: Very good IPA. Will have again.

Serving type: bottle
