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

clear deep orange with a hint of amber, white head little retention and spotty lacing

pine and floral hops is really all I'm getting but its nice

a lot of floral upfront some citrus and tropical fruit, didn't get the pine like i thought i would.

light bodied and carbonation

overall it a solid all was available IPA

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

Poured into a pint glass. This one pours a clear honey amber with a finger of bubbly white head.

Grapefruit in the aroma with a lemony edge to it. Cracker malt shows up. Grapefruit and pine on the pallet with a bit of a vegetable flavor. Lots of cracker malt flavors on the pallet with a slight bitter finish.

The body is light with sharp carbonation. Overall this one isn't bad. Certainly serviceable, but not top shelf by any means.

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

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance is a clear light copper with a thin 1/2 inch head which settles into a thin layer over the beer. Good lacing clinging to the glass.

Smells of citrusy hops along with some light caramel.

Tastes of citrusy hops first quickly followed by a light caramel maltiness. Moderate bitterness throughout lasting long after the other flavors have faded. Mouthfeel is pretty good for the abv.

Overall a decent run of the mill IPA. Nothing spectacular but it's solid.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A - Half finger white head. Clear golden amber color. Minimal foamy lacing of sides of glass

S - Nice citrus, floral, and glass hop aroma

T - Sour initially then bright hoppy citrus lemon tones with pine wood tastes to follow

M - Very creamy and pleasant mouthful

O - Overall the creaminess and smell were more enjoyable to me than the sour taste in this IPA
