4.05/5  rDev 0%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very appealing medium amber with the perfect amount of foamy off-white head and great retention. Familiar citrus hops, with some pine and floral hop as well. Malt doesn't really show well in the aroma, but there is a slight caramel and bready tone. Taste follows with a whack of hops, citrus, pine and floral. Citrus takes on a tangerine pineapple character. Very bitter (bottle says 70 IBU), would like to see the comatose. Malt shows better here, but the hops rule with an iron fist. Mouthfeel is puckering and bitter, but smooth other than that. Overall a fine IPA, although I usually don't go for things this hoppy, very enjoyable.
