4.2/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours a slightly burnt orange/hazy amber color with a whopping fluffy white head that sits beautifully throughout the session. Lacing clings to the glass as well.
Smell: A slight citrus smell blended with caramel malts and floral hops.
Taste: Moderately hoppy with a nice blend of malts. Leaves a slight bite but a big enough one to turn away the casual drinker.
Mouthfeel: The citrus attacks the palate and leaves a crisp feeling in the mouth that isn't too "earthy".
Drinkability: Due to the lack of the hoppiness in this brew, it paves the way for you to carry a six pack into a party and want to keep it all to yourself. Crisp and refreshing with a clean feeling left in the mouth.
Serving type: bottle

Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
