look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. No freshness date that I can find.

A: Pours a caramel amber color, can easily see through it. About a 2 finger head which dissipated quickly. Tons of sticky lacing and carbonation bubbles.

S: Smell is reminiscent of Lagunitas Sucks which makes sense. Dankness, citrus pine.

T: Bitter at first, crisp clean flavor. Malt sweetness, pine and citrus hop flavor. Refreshing and sessionable.

M: Bit thin, but not distractingly so. Moderate carbonation with a dry clean finish.

O: Very solid offering, tastey and refreshing though does little to elevate itself above the crowd. Nothing wrong with that, good solid beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

a: clear light copper body. two fingers of thick lumpy rocky head shows good staying power while leaving some sticky spiderweb lacing.

s: pine malt with a touch of citrus

t: malty body with an equally balanced piney hop body.

m: tad thin, good carbonation, oily feel, dry finish

o: really good year round ipa, don't know why it doesn't score higher.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance- medium copper glow, head dissipates quickly even with semi-rough pour

Smell- light malt sweetness with a few floral notes but not too much hop for an IPA

Taste- rich sweet tip do the tounge with more than a hint of toffee, hop character comes as an afterthought

Mouthfeel- medium bodied smoothness but still drinks like an ale, don't confuse it with a lager

Overall- a session IPA and what introduced me to future IPA styles
