3.65/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Deep reddish-orange with a with a yellow tinged light tan head. Head is well structured but drops quickly to about a quarter inch leaving lace all over.

Aroma is full of spicy and green hop notes along with bready malts, also starring in the aroma are resins, bourbon, herbs, butter and a touch of raw eggs.

Taste is actually pretty balanced, buttery sweetnes blended with softly prickling hops, vanilla (oakiness), and a long wet/dry finish. Nice bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium light. I don't know how drinkable it is, in spite of the huge buttery quality it is still quite enjoyable, at least in small quantities.

-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.
