4.23/5  rDev -0.5%

A - slightly hazy dark amber to light brown, white foamy head with lots of lacing

S - fruity citrus with hints of vanilla, very much like a creamsicle, as the drink warms the smell changes to vanilla and toffee, I love how this smells

T - sweet, malty, vanilla with a toffee finish; hops are subdued and muddled in with all the other flavors

M - velvety, wet and slightly carbonated; good for the style

O - well balanced, definitely nailed the style, not too thick and not unfresh seeming

The beer pours a perfect copper color that you can almost see through, minimal haze.

The smell is fantastic, juniper and evergreen. Very fragrant and enjoyable.

The taste is near-prfect for me as a moderate hop-lover. Clean and dry, mildly fruity with lots of "Pine" (I think people mis-construe Pine with Juniper, so i'll say Pine but i mean Juniper).

The mouthfeel is good but as a fan of carbonation I could stand it to be a bit more bubbly.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic Extra IPA, I've had a few of their other beers and think this is the best by-far. Seems to be less available then their others but absolutely worth looking for. Cheers.
