T-Awesome, follows the nose, but has wonderful depth

M-Very good, everything here in great balance

O-A very solid effort from a brewery that can do no wrong

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

12oz bottle served in a pint glass.

pours a clear golden / medium amber tone while yielding about a finger of frothy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. solid looking beer. nose primarily showcases citic hoppiness with a distinct malt presence behind it.

flavor is solid. hoppy through and through, offset a little by the toasty, caramel maltiness. moderate bitterness for an IPA, nothing over the top. medium bodied mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

overall a solid IPA. nothing uber-fantastic or otherworldly, but a reasonably offering that holds its own. its wide availability makes it a trusty fall-bak plan.

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

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers worth of bubbly white head

S: A good dose of citrusy hops with some slight spiciness. Malts provide a nice balancing breadiness

T: Follows the nose, with some nice spicy and citrusy hops with just enough pale malts to balance things out. Finishes with a mix of breadiness and slight bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly lacking

O: Another solid IPA amongst the sea of solid IPAs. It's good, but nothing really stands out in comparison to the multitude of other IPAs on the market. Good price point, though, and easy to savor at 6.2%
