look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear golden hue with a thin one finger head that faded slowly to leave a small half finger blanket.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, light citrus and pine, faint honey, earthy malts.

T - Taste is more malt forward than hops. Very nice bitter light pine finish that seems to grow the more one drinks. Malts are sweet, lightly earthy, faint grapefruit peel and pine resin. Solid, but malty.

M - Mouthfeel is easy drinking, nice bitter finish. Solid.

O - Overall, a decent enough IPA, however, in today's world of hop bombs this really can't hold up at all.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, golden/copper color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, floral hops, yeast, sweet malt, slight alcohol, strong pine. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. There is also a strong bitterness. Tastes of resin-y hops, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, slight alcohol, hint of earthy malt, and strong pine. Overall, decent appearance, good aroma that is subtle but complex, but the body is not well blended.
