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

Had on tap at simple pleasures in San francisco- pours a surprisingly clear golden color with a healthy 1.5 finger head, decent retention and beautiful rings of sticky lacing.

Smells very piney and a little resin-y. There's definitely some very pale malt in there as well that provides a nice contrast to the hops.

Very refined IPA flavor- not a blast of hops but definitely a very present hop flavor. Pine up front, followed by a modest bitterness, then some pale malt sweets, overtaken by the pine resin bitterness for what feels like an everlasting dry finish.

Mouthfeel is also great- light body, mild to moderate carbonation, a good amount of resin stickiness. This is a great IPA. Never had it in the bottle but fresh on tap for 4 bucks is unbeatable.
