Bottled On: 03/14/13
Tasted On: 06/09/13

A – Pours true to the style. Light amber honey hue. Translucent, and head is bright white, recedes quickly, and leaves nice, light lacing behind.

S – Nice bouquet here. Lots of citrus and sweet malt notes here, light lemon, grapefruit and pineapple.

T – Bitter, fruity and nice pine notes. A little metallic note to it as well, overall very clean, malt backbone comes through here, but it is only lightly sweet, nothing cloying.

M – Nice and crisp, carbonation is near perfect.

O – Very drinkable and refreshing IPA here, nicely bitter and balanced out by some light sweet malts. The nose on this one is great.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

a) copper color, redish yellow. good head at first with medium retention. pretty bubbly and inviting looking

s) smells like hops, strong, some pine scents

t) strong bite of hops up front but very balanced with the malt and super smooth finish. i can't taste the 7.5% alcohol either

m) kinda doughy in the mouth and definitely bubbly

o) a great beer. i was expecting more of a hoppy taste, but i'm not let down at all. it is hoppy and super well balanced so all the flavors blend very well together.
