look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This IPA is a heavily clouded amber-orange, translucent leaning opaque with continuous soft bubbling activity. The head is a yellow-tinted wall of foam, starting at 2 fingers and remaining a more drinkable 1 1/2 for most of the session. The lowest it goes is half a finger, and strong, leaving chunky foam in plenty.
The smell is followed accurately by the taste, the main exception being that it develops a cheddary sort of note with time. Otherwise it's got some pith and pine resin, earth, some fruits and herb, going a little too astringent in the buildup. Still, it's a good and hoppy IPA that just needs to be cleaned up.
Crispness is up front in a medium body that has a flash of something a bit sharp and goes herbal-dry into the finish, which also takes a little off the body.

Good IPA. Have not had in quite some time. Irony is they are in my back yard, so to speak. Nothing overwhelming, but not bad. Smooth start and smooth finish, with a nice IPA flavor. Hops don't kick you in the face, nor do they kick you in the ass. It is a solid brew to drink. In fact, you could drink a couple three of these and not feel like you have been roofed.

A: hazy; bronze colored; 1 finger off white head that receded slowly to a thick cap; moderate lacing;

S: tropical fruit;

T: a let down from the aroma; earthy, with a touch of tropical fruit in the background; very little bitterness; a somewhat bland finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: very drinkable, but I would have preferred to taste more of the tropical fruit and I would have liked more bitterness;
