look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Orange-yellow color with off-white head. Looks like an IPA should look.

S: Pine, hops. That's really all I get.

T: This one's got a lot of hops and pine resin. Pretty tasty, if you ask me. I get orange peel, leather, pine, grass, lemon, zest, and some citrus-y tones. The beer has a nice malt backbone, too; but, this is not something I look forward to in an IPA.

M: Thicker than expected. Medium I think. Not bad.

O: I'm not a huge IPA fan, but I enjoy my IPA's every now and then. This is one that I enjoy! It's a well crafted brew. The only thing that got me was the malt character. I like IPA's with a light body and more fruit tones. This is a good brew, regardless.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Amber pour...vanishing head...thin, but quiet waves of complexity....bitter flows to floral..NICE..at 7.5 % not a hint of ALC. My taste buds hoping for a closing splash but not happening. This is a good IPA but not a great one . In the IPA race to the top.. closing in, but finishing just out of the winners circle. Cheers
