look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

I don't normally choose beers that are this hoppy and bitter, but this beer is what IPAs are about, and more. The beer pours a medium head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. This is probably the best smelling IPA I've had, as the tropical/citrus aromas are spectacular and huge. The taste does not quite live up to the smell, but the citrus and pine flavors continue to be great, and this beer has pretty much no malt presence at all and finishes quite bitter, but that's to be expected. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, but the beer finishes clean and bitter. Overall, this is an incredibly drinkable IPA for a beer with such dominant flavors. This would make for a great session ale given the thinner body. One of these is just not enough.

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

Bottle (no date) poured into my HF stemmed tulip...

A - Light orange in color with a nice frothy head. Very stick lace all over the glass and good retention throughout

S - Strong citrus aroma.... Oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, grassy

T - Huge hop bomb! More of the same citrus in the flavor, the slightest of malt in the backbone and some bready notes

M - Real light body, thin mouthfeel, hard hop bite on the finish

Overall, really reminds me of a Stone IPA. Real dank and citrusy. This is excellent and glad I got a chance to try it.
