look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- Pours a transparent copper with a small white head that recedes to a small foam and leaves moderate lacing.

Smell-Strong citrus and grapefruit hops. Lots of resin in the nose.

Taste- Great taste. Starts with a light fruity sweetness that is then hit with lots of hops. Grapefruit, citrus, a little pine. Then the end is a good bitterness, not overpowering but enough to let you know its an IPA.

Mouthfeel- Good carbonation, the body is a bit on the lighter side for an IPA.

Overall- Very good IPA, great balance between hops, malts, flavor and bitterness.
