4.2/5 rDev -4.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Nice hazy dark orange. Pours with a really fluffy 1-2 finger head. Leaves a good amount of lacing and the head won't dissipate fully. It really sticks around, which I always love in a beer.
S - Big citrus. Grapefruit. A little bit of sweetness from the malt. It does smell quite nice for an IPA. Typically I prefer to be blasted by a huge DIPA's nose, but this is still really fruity and delicious smelling.
T - A pretty bold flavor for a single IPA. It's got a nice malt backbone, but the hops are definitely at the forefront. It's not quite as good as the smell unfortunately. Still a really solid entry to the IPA category.
M - Carbonated well. Refreshing and very easy drinking. I could session this if it wasn't for the abv.
O - I really enjoy this. I won't be buying it again due to the price. 500ml was $6.55. No thanks, but I really wanted to try it once. Disregarding the price, I definitely recommend this. Might as well try it once, I definitely don't regret my purchase.

Our “East Coast” version of a West Coast-style IPA. LOL, love it! On bottle it says to drink fresh, because hoppy beers don't age well. I will obey this. Thanks to papparoachy for being one of the most generous ba's I have had a pleasure to trade with.
A- Murky honey, medium medium-large lacing, white fluffy lacing, medium legs
S- Hint of jasmine in there, smells great with that, but lacks some other qualities of a good IPA S. Mild hoppy backbone that has a foggy smell in your nose.
T- This tastes like Zeelander but has more of a great IPA taste. Fluffy hoppy, bit malty. Nice and light, not overboard on anything. Def lunch
M- 5.0 on this. Crushes it just like Zeelander does on the M. Creamy as hell, nice and fluffy, so masterfully done on the M.
O- SO glad this great BA sent me this as an extra! Wow, so good!
