look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass. Reviewed alongside Firestone Walker Double Jack.

A: Cloudy amber with giant particles and a two-finger, creamy, off-white head that lasted a long time and left a nice film. Great lacing.

S: Citrus, caramel malt. Nice.

T: Light to moderate sweetness and strong hop bitterness. Sweet caramel malt and citrus hops.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very smooth.

O: This beer looks incredible with huge particles and great lacing. It's really smooth too. I liked the look and feel of this beer better than the Firestone Walker Double Jack, but this beer didn't smell or taste quite as good at that one. Overall, I'd say it's a tie between the two.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy, golden-orange body wtih a very small white head that reduces to a white ring. I would have preferred a bigger, puffier head for this IPA.

S- Citrus, resinous, sweet and hoppy. Inviting.

T- Starts with some tart grapefruit notes, ends with a fruity, winey, hoppy aftertaste. Leaves some bitterness on the tongue which is faint and enjoyable.

M- Medium-high carbonation, little to no sign of booze, which is impressive considering the high ABV.

Overall, I enjoyed this brew. I nicely crafted IPA with some good complexity.
