4.35/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - Golden in color with a modest white head.

Smell - A mild citrusy aroma was present with an certain Earthiness to back it up.

Taste - At the front, I noted citrus rind, lemon, grass, grapefruit, and grassy resin. For an IPA, this is quite busy and far from one-dimensional. The hops seem to mellow in the aftertaste with mild resiny after.

Mouthfeel - I would suggest this to be a pretty typical IPA in terms of mouthfeel with modest carbonation brushing away the citrus and allowing the resin to linger.

Overall - This is certainly a better than average IPA, particularly for those seeking something more than a hop-bomb.

4.48/5  rDev +4.2%
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.
