look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: A deep orange hue with a nice, patchy lacing.

Smells: piney, orange, grapefruit and floral. It had a very good smell to it.

Taste : Taste is hops goes quickly to a strongly grapefruit and the malt balance the beer out nicely .

mouthfeel: It has medium with a smooth amount of carbonatio

This is a good IPA for $10.99 price tag for a sixer. I will stick with Sierra Nevada for price only and it taste a little better. After a while all of these good west IPA taste the same then I go with price tag.

this is a nice little ipa. it has that bold piney flavor- with a slight full, round sweetness at the end, which smooths the finish out. over all i cant complain about this ipa. it isnt one of those huge kick in the teeth ipas that are all the rage these days, but it does have a little uniqueness that makes it pretty cool, without making it gimmicky.

Had a couple on draft. The hops were a little on the weak side for what I have grown accustomed to from west coast IPA's. Color was a murky orange, no real distinctive smell. Overall a forgettable beer. Would not bother with this beer again, had two since it was the on,y IPA on tap that day where I was.
