4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Consumed 11/20

A: This beer pours a crystal clear copper color with a two finger white head. Head retains nicely leaving sticky lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is big on hops! Floral and citrus dominate, with a mild hint of caramel backbone coming through. Alcohol is also present in the nose.

T: Taste starts with a burst of hop goodness. Healthy dose of citrus hops up front that is quickly balanced out but a surprisingly strong caramel malt presence. Much more malt in the body than is detectable in the nose and it works nicely to balance this beer. Finish is another big dose of hops, this time pine and floral notes hit the tongue to give a nice bite.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, oily feel with a semi-dry finish.

D: This is a nicely brewed beer, well balanced, easily drinkable.

Serving type: bottle

4.28/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. No bottle date is apparent.

A: Pours a light golden honey brown with generous 3 finger white head that settled fairly quickly and left moderate lacing.

S: Pineapple, grapefruit, fresh squeezed orange juice. Pine needles.

T: Dominant citrus fruit flavor. Ripe pineapples, grapefruit. Slight bitter hops.

M: Reasonably light and crisp. Lingering hop bitterness.

O: Outstanding IPA. Reminds me a fair amount of Dirtwolf. I should find a few more bottles for sure.
