4.8/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from 22 oz bottle into a Nonic.

Appearance- Pours a crystal clear gold color with some Orangish highlights. 1 inch white head fades quickly.

Smell- Pure pine needles and grapefruits. Smells awesome. No spices of note in the nose.

Taste- Fruitiness is foremost in this one. Not as bitter as most IIPA's. Kinda sweet. Really balanced flavor. I love it. Has a great little bite to it at the end.

Mouthfeel- Crisp and tingly at first and then creamy when you swallow. Leaves the tongue feeling tingly.

Drinkability- Awesome, pure awesome. I could drink these all night. The 8% is right at that level where you can have a couple pints and get a nice buzz from it.

Overall- I think this is a very underrate IIPA. Not nearly as hyped as some of it's contemporaries, but it has outshined many of them. I would love to have these in my fridge at all times.

4.16/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - clear amber, frothy one finger head fades to film.

S - tropical fruit salad, mango, floral hops.

T - on money, fruit salad still, pineapple, hops to the fore and well balanced. Little bittering hops makes easy drinking. Good malt backbone. Hint grapefruit / pine. Overall quite a moderate taste level.

M - medium weight, moderate carbonation. One stage from oily. No hint of ABV save a little warmth.

O - excellent effort, well balanced beer, not as in your face as I would have expected.

4.06/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

From a tall bottle.

Upon popping off the cap a large foamy head comes and stays.

Smells of the greatest smell in life; hops.

Taste is very complex, with bitter hops throughout. Dark notes of coffee and malt present, ending with a slightly smokey taste that quickly leaves the mouth feeling crisp, with only a tad bite. Very sippable.
