3.83/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Could not find a date on the bottle. Looked on the neck where they are normally but it was not there.

A - poured out a rich golden slightly hazy body with a creamy 2 finger white head. Looks well carbonated.

S - On the nose is a nice sweet hoppiness, which smells nice and fruity like orange, with a heavy dose of caramel melding with it. Has a thick syrupy smell to it, almost like orange rock candy.

T - The bitterness hits right away and fades slowly. Also there's a pungent lemon rind, citrus flavor, tangyness with a hint of the buiscuit malt tones coming through in the finish. This is definitely a hop forward west coast IPA with a strong hop forward profile. Slight alcohol on the finish of this one.

M - It is light bodied, with an oily slickness, and a rather high amount of carbonation. It's on the dry side and leaves you craving another sip as you mouth dry's out and the flavors disappear.

O - For a easy to drink west coast IPA this one is rather enjoyable. I'm not totally in love with the hop profile of this one, with its slightly tangy and the lemon rind flavor it proves a little to much for me. But that is just being picky, so if you like a hoped forward west coast easy drinking IPA this one is for you . Cheers!
