Nice amber - yellow color, high opacity.
Smells like a good ipa. Nice hoppiness with some citrus.
Tastes like it smells except with less flavor than I expected.
Very watery mouth feel for an ipa.
Still, a solid brew.

a: a hazy burnt orange color with some nice amber notes. 1/2 finger white bubbly head. the head looks like the surface of the moon. so, theres that

s: super strong pineapple and grapefruit, mango, crisp malts, a hint of sugary sweetness. a very faint amount of pine. very juicy smelling

t: taste follows the nose pretty tightly. juicy pineapple, mango, sweet grapefruit. a hint of strawberry. there is some mellow bitterness that comes from a mixture of grapefruit, pine, and raw tea leafs. its quite tasty, with just the right amount of bitterness to make this refreshing, while also sweet and extremely juicy

m: its on the lighter side of medium. i thought it might have a thicker syrup-like quality, but the juiciness and carbonation keep this on the lighter side, making it extremely easy drinking

o: i like this more than i was expecting too. i really enjoy how juicy this is in aroma and taste. its bitter, but not overly bitter or off-putting. very enjoyable

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.
