4.58/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: a nice orange like color, fairly clear, a small head that dissipated pretty quickly, looks nice, lots of tiny bubbles in the creamy off white head, lots of lacing.

Aroma: big juicy, citrus aromas, a lovely aroma, big hops, not getting any alcohol on the nose,

Taste: big bitterness up front, a lingering citrus flavor, slight alcohol burn, dry finish

Feel: medium mouthfeel, dry, lots of tiny bubbles, juicy.

Overall: this is my favorite IPA, it's easily available, fairly priced, and if it's fresh I always pick up a six pack or bomber, just a great IPA. The biggest challenge to this beer is freshness.
