look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A- pours a light amber with a good sized head that disapates slowly over time and leaves behind a good amount of lacing.

S- smell is very hoppy, with hints of pineapple and citrus.

T - does not delivery on the nose it is not as hoppy as the smell with little sweetness to it either. The bitterness that is now typically associated with ipa's is not there either.

M - syrupy consistency with almost no alcohol burn and mild carbonation.

O- not my cup of tea maybe a good mild into to ipa's

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip

A- Brassy orange in color, with a sticky off white head that retains at 1/4". A bit of lacing.

S- Fresh citrus and a bit of a floral nose. A little pine is in there too.

T- Slight sweet malt character, with a bitter grapefruit peel finish.

M- Medium body. Carbonation is rather mild. Bitter finish, but not super dry.

O- Very good. Not too bitter, which is always a plus for me. Nose is very complex. An enjoyable beer and an IPA on the lighter side.
