3.71/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This brew is a hazy orange color with a tan head that quickly fizzed away. No lacing. I am picking up on some pine in the aroma but there is a lot of malt to the nose of this beer. The flavor follows the nose. Very malty beer in terms of flavor for an IPA. It has some sweet toasted caramel characteristics. The hops only come across on the finish. It is nicely balanced but this beer could be hoppier for the style and the mouthfeel is a bit too sticky. Overall this is a fine IPA but there is better stuff out there for the price so I would not recommend it.
