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

A- Very transparent, deep golden body with a foamy white head that settles quickly. Lots of sticky lacing from the head.

S- Lots of pine and citrus aromas come through from the hops. Big pine, big citrus, hints of grapefruit and tropical fruits with hints of toast.

T- Big juicy grapefruit, lots of citrus, pine, toasted malts, great balance, potent hops, really nice.

M- Medium carbonation, with a hint of carbonation sting. Some stickiness to the body with a hoppy coating left behind.

O- One of the top single IPAs out there. Great flavors, great aroma, great balance and easy drinking.

A: A slightly hazy, dark straw/light amber appearance, with a thick one and a half to two fingers of slightly off-white, medium-bubbled head, that laces well. Clarity seems to be about middle of the road with this one.

S: Moderately malty, but with some pine resin, fruits, and hoppy aromas.

T: Starts malty as it smells, but then things get weird; I notice some additional sweetness (though more like fruit than caramel) before a mild hop finish. It's the mid/late sweetness that is confusing my tongue. Covers the 7.5% alcohol well though; no boozy taste.

M: Medium to medium- thickness. A little slicker, but perhaps that's because I've been drinking DIPAs lately. Carbonation is great.

O: Interesting IPA. The hops don't quite assault your tongue like a DIPA, yet it keeps things interesting by deviating from the malts->caramel->hops formula of a lot of IPAs/DIPAs. It's an interesting change of pace, but not a staple for me.
