look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Cute little 12oz bottle in the typical North Peak style (white label, one color background, something in the middle). Beer poured a cloudy tan/burnt orange color with a thin beige head.

Smell: I can smell some spicy hops before I ever put this near my sniffer! Closer sniffing gives me piney hops, some citrus, and again a trace of "spice" ??

First Drink: Strong bitter hop flavor up front followed by sour citrus notes and finishing with a cleaner "pine" hops flavor.

Mouthfeel: A bit tacky/sticky in my mouth but the carbonation is nice. A good sippin' beer.

Last Drink: A wider variety of citrus coming out now with some grapefruit and orange peel flavors. No real sense of the high ABV but I can feel the "warming" sensation. More sweet malt comes through in the end as well. Nicely varied.

Drinkability: Full of interesting flavors and sensations you can't really go wrong with this brew... unless you aren't a fan of strong IPA!

On-tap at Bunkers Sports Bar & Grill, Vandalia, OH

A: The beer is relatively clear light amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down and left some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus and pine resin hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has some notes of tropical fruits to go along with the citrus and pine resin flavors. There is a moderate amount of bitterness and this lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has nice aromas and flavors of fresh hops; the tropical fruit flavors add some complexity to the taste.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/1/2013. Pours moderately hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, grapefruit, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine resin, orange rind, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Large amount of earthy pine resin bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest/rind, pineapple, pine resin, floral, grass, bread, and light caramel on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of citrus/pine hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice wet hop IPA. All around good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
