look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy orange amber with thin tan head and okay retention. Earthy resin and citrus aroma. Flavor follows the aroma without too much of an earthy presence. A very strong hop presence with a moderately long linger though a good malt base that’s lightly sweet. Smooth feel with a sharp bite.

A good hop bomb IPA that, like many others, loses most of the flavor to the hop bitterness. The flavors come back if you take your time but really becomes hard to finish. There’s certainly nothing off about the flavor of hop linger so it’s a good over hopped beer that would be good for a pint if you’re in the mood.

Well...After reading some of the other reviews I wondered but not for long....this Beer taste Good, well above some of the average or less I have tried lately. Maybe I was just ready to taste something Good for a change. I would definitely buy this again and enjoy it probably more. Not sure why it did not smell did not come through?
