look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A-a hazy golden color with a fingers worth of white head that leaves a thin layer of lace on top

S-pale malts, citrus, grapefruit, light fruity sweetness

T-pale bready backbone with citrus and grapefruit and a bitter finish with each sip

M-medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter finish

Overall a very decent IPA, easy to drink, but nothing extraordinary

Picked up a growler of this last weekend. Good, but maybe not their best. Color was a yellow-ish copper. Some head, but not a ton of carbonation, easy mouthfeel for an IPA. The taste was pretty mild for an IPA. Some hops and slight citrus flavor, again, not strong. Floral aroma. All in all a slightly above average IPA, just not super flavorful.

Pours cloudy, shiny golden, with floating bits and a small white head that lingers.
Smells nice, grapefruit, tangerine, peach, papaya, mango, faint floral notes, so pretty decent on the hop side. Add some caramel and biscuity malts, and it might trick you into thinking this is very sweet.
The first seconds after sipping it might also do that. Fruit jam, especially orange and peach, pineapple syrup. Green bitter hops "counterattack", with lots of pine, hop resin, bitter grass, very "dank". Pale malt backbone, a tiny bit biscuity. Aftertaste doesn't suffer from the big bitter flash, that leaves quite some fruitiness along with all the big green notes.
Medium body and carbonation, well hidden alcohol.
Felt like a great by-the-book American IPA, very strong with the hops but also not overpowering, tasty.
