4.25/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Kala1073. Thanks a bunch man!
A- Pours a nice cloudy orange with a solid 2-3 finger creamy white head.
S- Fairly well-balanced in aroma, with a nice pine-scented hop smell with come candied citrus peel and a nice malt backbone.
T- Not so hop-forward in the flavor, with a buttery maltiness peeking through pretty strongly. The hops do come through in a piney, citrusy flavor, but with little bitterness.
M/D- Creamy and nicely carbonated. Very drinkable and well-balanced, though a bit high in ABV to call sessionable.
Very nice IPA, much more well-balanced than its brother Sculpin, though probably not quite as good. Still very nice beer.

4.53/5 rDev +11.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 7% abv.
Appearance: The body has an orange amber color with a light haze and lively carbonation flowing up to the head. It’s head slowly settles from tall thick and creamy off white foam. A light coving holds on till the last sip.
Smell: This is one of the highlights of this beer. It is full of floral, citrusy orange and sweet tropical fruity notes of papaya and mango.
Taste / Palate: On the tongue hop bitterness is king. The flavor is darker and more bitter than the nose suggested. The malt lays down a nice sweet bready base but the hops quickly take over with orange pith and deep resinous bitterness which hangs on long into the finish. The palate feels right on and balanced with good lively carbonation.
