4.2/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

sampled at the bar at red fez. gave a hard pour, but was unnecessary- the beer overflowed. when things settled, the brew was a nice golden copper with a big white head. smell was citrusy, hoppy and a touch earthy. taste was hop, hop, hop. and then pine, citrus and a little more hop. ends with a very clean finish.

ipswich ipa has been my ipa of choice of late and think that this may take over for a while. a big, yet highly drinkable hoppy treat.

3.83/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Amber, honey appearance. Very minimal head and head retention.

Smell- Light citrus smell with orange in forefront. Small nose.

Taste- Nice citrus flavor with a little floral hop profile. Bitterness is subtle but balances well with the malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel- Light and pleasant.

Overall- A very drinkable and subtly bitter IPA. A solid beer.
