4.35/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Nice rich golden color, no haze, quite clear. Nice rich white foam with some ridges and bumps and provided wonderful lacing. Smell is piney citrusy like the california hops. Just what I was hoping for.
Taste is great-the hops shine through but it is balanced by the malts. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. Perfectly acceptable for an IPA. Drinkability is great. I will have at least 5 more, just not today.

3.68/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

appearance is a clear copper, pours two fingers of white head that retains reasonably well until eventually settling into a thin layer of head that retains throughout.

smell; citrus fruit, bit of floral hop character, molasses.

taste; mildly fruity, citrusy hop character, hint of resiny hop oil, touch of malt in the background.

mouthfeel; light/medium body, very carbonated.

overall; enjoyable enough but unexciting, it's a difficult task for an American IPA to really stand out and this beer proves just that.
