look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

various bottle sizes, some poured into snifter.
-Clear light copper color.
-Aroma has a subdued citrus note with malt backgrounds.
-Taste starts off with a bit of citrus hop transforms into a bitter finish, with a malty aftertaste.
-The carbonation plays well with the hop on the tongue, it "segways" into a bitter finish.

Personally, a bit disappointed with the aroma (had to do a lot of sniffing to get at it), but an above average IPA overall.
