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

Getting a perfume of citrus and slight grapefruit hops. Very smooth and crisp hop bite with a delicious refreshing cascade fruitiness rolling across the tongue with that perfume citrus hop taste and ending with an herbal pineyness from the Centennial hops.

The bready yeasty maltiness perfectly balances out the hop showcase on this one not leaving it too bitter and making it refreshing along with that cascade hope fruitiness. I always found the cascade hop to the be a very crisp fruitiness. I also can taste some grapefruit overtones in there as well.

This is a very sessionable IPA and is quickly one of my favorites. I've never had just an okay beer from this brewery. They are always great. The balance on this one is amazing but such a fruity crisp bite from the hops is again very refreshing and makes this a very hopped but extremely drinkable beer which could some times be hard to pull off I can imagine. This one does just that. Excellent beer.
