4.38/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appears amber in color, a creamy off-white cap about a quarter inch and superb lacing. the way an IPA should look.

Smells of fresh hops, grapefruit, lemon zest. Very fresh and spicy.

Taste offers a good amount of bitterness initially, but a mildly malty backbone creates a perfect balance. Follows the nose almost identically but the malt is just a little more pronounced in the taste.

Between low and medium carbonation, velvety, just a little sticky. rather light bodied.

This is a good-looking, good-smelling, good tasting beer. It's flavor profile is not overly complex but it manages to showcase all of the desirable aspects of the style. Its light body would allow me to drink a lot of these. Two thumbs up

-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.
