3.25/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Amber/orange color with a minimal heal that dissipates quickly into small islands of foam. Light lacing.

Smell is kind of weak of an IIPA. Hops and citrus at the forefront, certainly not as strong of a smell as the flavor.

Taste is kind of middle of the road for an IIPA imo. I don't taste the bold, over the top flavors that I have come to expect out of these kind of beers. The balance isn't very bold, it comes on the tongue and goes down the throat with nearly the same hoppy, piney flavor. This flavor isn't uncharted territory, and usually these flavors are met with a better balance of acid or alcohol, but here it was just a smooth hop flavor. The 100+ IBU would make it seem like this would be quite bitter, but it certainly didn't feel that way to me.

Mouth feel was very good. Well carbonated, finishes just a bit dry but on the tongue it felt very creamy. Easy to drink in any situation I would imagine.

Overall, this is an average IIPA. This is about what I would expect from an IIPA, but I would hope for more. I certainly didn't feel that the flavor or the smell was well better than average for the style. I did, however, feel the price was WAY better than average for the style, and that boosted the overall score. 8% ABV, tastes good, easy to drink, doesn't destroy the palate, and it's really cheap? Certainly worth buying again for these reasons. Not a knock your socks of kind of beer, but a knock your socks off beer when considering the price.
