4.75/5 rDev +7.7%
This is what an IPA should taste like.
A: A medium amber, and for some reason, whenever I pour there is a lot of head,
S: Smells hoppy, with a tinge of citrus.
T: Not too heavy on the hop-bite, yet distinctly presents itself as an IPA. Good aftertaste that lingers.
M: Medium, perfectly carbonated.
O: 4.75 - A fantastic IPA. I am at a very early point in my IPA-drinking education (I've probably only tried around 25-30 different IPA's), but this is easily my favorite thus far. A MUST try.

4.17/5 rDev -5.4%
A: 4 Nice moderate amber with a dense head, producing good lacing
S: 4 Lots of grapefruit citrus hop scent, a nice old fashioned hopping.
T: 4.25 High bitterness initially gives a big flavor of grapefruit, new-mown grass hoppiness. That's the dominant flavor. There's a good malt presence too, but it's in the backseat, except the finish isn't as dry as some varieties--a good mix of sweet malt and hoppy bitterness.
M: 4 Neutral texture, full bodied
O: 4.5 This is a very tasty IPA, drinkable and very enjoyable.
Weighting (percentages): 20%, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 4.17
