4.1/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Perfectly clear and golden in color with a 2 1/2 finger white head that recedes rather quickly leaving plenty of nice, sticky lacing. Decent carbonation.

Spicy citrus and citrus rind, with light pine in the aroma.

Sweet citrus complement by the bitter rind early on. The bitter component gains near full control in the end.

Light syrup on the tongue. Crisp and drying. Oily hop burn in the throat.

The taste improved for me as the beer warmed. I marked it up from a 3.5. The beer has a substantial bitterness, but it's pleasant, not over the top. Definitely worth another try.

-from notes
Poured from a bottle into a glass

A nice golden straw color with a slight head that quickly fades to just some lacing around the glass.

The aroma is mostly citrus. I get a lot of lemon with a little pine underneath.

I like the taste of this IPA -- pretty juicy, lots of citrus up front with a little lingering resinous bitterness that's very nice.

The mouthfeel is bubbly and slightly sticky.

Overall, a very decent IPA.
