Pours an orange tone with a bright white head which dissipates to thick foamy blotches with excellent lacing.

Big citrus and pine nose.  Grapefruit, lime, and pine.

The flavor profile is aggressive buttering hops; I mostly get grapefruit and pine.  Middle is malty, but bitterness wins in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with nice carbonation.  It does finish with some perceivable alcohol.

This is a nice, hoppy, bitter IPA. But, a bit one-dimensional.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle labeled as best before Month 4, Week 2, no year. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Clear amber with almost no head, what little of a head there is is white. Light carbonation activity.

S: Sweet and citrusy. Oranges and light floral hops on the nose.

T: More bitter than the nose indicates, though rather balanced. There's a sweetness from the malts with a citrus grapefruit bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium bodied with a good amount of fizzy carbonation.

O: Good drinkablity here at a good price, I like this.

Poured into a 12oz Pint Glass. Yet another beer mail review!

Appearance - Fairly clear and bright amber in color with ALOT of carbonation bubbles clinging to the side of the glass that tapers off after a couple of minutes. Head pours around a 2 finger width and is pretty foamy. Lacing is also pretty decent and sticky

Smell - Pretty citrus smelling for an IPA, with the floral hops being more on the subtle side. I can also smell some malts and some yeasts in here as well. I can also smell the aroma from about 1 1/2 feet away.

Taste - The flavor is more balanced out here between the citrus and hoppy flavors; It's hoppy, but not in an overwhelming sort of sense, though the malts add a bit more complexity to the flavor. Aftertaste is a bitter citrus/piney hop taste.

Mouthfeel - It's pretty light in body but a little bit thicker than usual. Carbonation is also pretty light, despite the intense carbonation seen earlier and it's pretty crisp as well! It's pretty easy to drink by IPA standards!

Overall - It's a pretty good IPA that , even though the flavor lacks the complexity that other IPAs have. Easy to recommend to any IPA fan.
