4.6/5 rDev +13%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Poured into a Sam Adams goofball glass. Finished a Westbrook Gose just 10 minutes before pouring this one.
Appearance: Looks dope. Very nice Werther's Original color. Cloudy, unfiltered, as most beers really should be.
Smell: It's a nice, funky, somewhat atypical American IPA smell. Has hints of English style IPA, such as lightly earthy, lemongrass scents. I also get light orange, and a little more pine. There's a lemon cupcake thing going on that I like.
Taste: The aroma carries into the taste pretty well. More malty than the most common IPAs. Very nice doughy malt character. Lemon, coriander.
Mouthfeel is awesome. Medium-Thick body, lingers a good while with that lemon cupcake flavor. Not so thick that I couldn't have a few.
Overall: This beer has reignited me. Can't wait to take a split 6 of this and Gose down the river in a tube this summer! Boy oh boy, life is good. This beer reminds you of that.
Serving type: can

4.26/5 rDev +4.7%

A- My can poured a retarded amount of head, not even worth measuring. So that is why I docked some points on A. Medium golden, white fluffy head.
S- The nose is dulled down big time for me. I am getting some citrus faintly.
T- The taste is really great, but muted like the nose. I am not a huge IPA guys, so when the hop profile is tuned down a bit and some citrus takes the forefront, I am a big fan!
M- Very very smooth with a waxy feel to it. My mouth is coated in that wax feeling some beers gives you.
O- I thought this was a great IPA, very sessionable.

4.21/5 rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
A: Cloudy-hazy, light orange-yellow in color. Forms a fairly large, fluffy, off-white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.
S: Pleasantly aromatic. Mostly citrus. Grapefruit and orange. Not incredibly juicy, but certainly citrus forward. Lighter notes of pine. Some light malts.
T: Taste is all hops and that isn't a bad thing. Again mostly citrus, orange, grapefruit, tangerine. But the pine comes through more in the taste than it does in the aroma. A bit of resin and spice on back end.
M: Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Moderate-to-heavy carbonation. Somewhat prickly in the mouth.
O: A very nice, hop forward IPA available at a very reasonable price.
Serving type: bottle
