3.68/5 rDev -12.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
appearance- not much of a head with no retention and slight lacing. Clear and golden in color.
smell- faint citrus, specifically oranges. Sugars are noticeable
taste- fresh, citrus hops with oranges and flowers are balanced with fair amount of sweetness in the malts. Spices and orange lingers in the aftertaste along with some hoppy bitterness. At 8%, alcohol is not noticeable.
mouthfeel- medium body and a bit chalky and fizzy on the tongue.
drinkability- this goes down easy... more like a 6.5%.
summary- this is a nice IPA with fresh citrus hops. If you like orange notes this is the one to behold. It does not feel like a double. It is missing that big malt and hops punch that I expect of the style. None the less it is decent and flavorful. Presentation was sub-par though. I think the ABV is lower than advertised.

Purchased this while doing my weekend a month at the base I was on. They had a decent selection of beer, and I wound up going with this. I was very pleased with my selection. It poured a nice amber color with a very thick foamy rich white head. What got me though was the smell. This smell is what every IPA should strive for. Floral, fruity sweet and good. I could sit there smelling it all night. The smell didn't translate completely into the taste, but it was still very good. I'd say the lower level of the top tier of IPAs. Felt very smooth in my mouth, very refreshing. I think this IPA is very underrated. I am glad I found it and would not hesitate to drink it again.
