look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Golden opaque. 3 fingers of white head. excellent lacing. head remains for entire beer.

S - Excellent grapefruit, lemon, grass, citrus hops, minor hot spice and honey

T - Wow this is good. Initially- Sweet carmel & honey. finish is a smooth hop. 102 IBU are very mellow. bitterness is low.

M - Frothy, high viscosity, carbonation is low, coverage is excellent.

O - This is excellent. Sweetness moderates the bitterness superbly. Every sip keeps you wanting more. 8 ABV? wow...hidden very well. I believe even non-IPA lovers would like this. Very impressed.

Great color and decent head. Very enjoyable beer overall. I can't quite put my finger on what it"s missing but there is something small holding it back from being near the top for me. It's definitely a beer I will recommend and buy in the future though.

Great beer. Great taste. Goes down as one of the tops... for now.
This wasn't on my "to-drink" list, but I made an exception. I'm glad I did.

A- Looks great, but I'll admit, I drank it right out of the bottle.
S-scent was of a perfect for a solid drinkable beer. Not over powering to the point that you felt like you had to brace yourself for a kick in the mouth, but not weak.
T- taste, my favorite part. It was good, very good. Easy and smooth. A great hop taste and even flavor.

O- this is a good solid beer. You should definitely check it out.

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.
