A - pours an amber color with a decent head and good lacing
S - nice pine nose with a solid malt backbone
T - pine up front with a bit of resin. Malt and Carmel on the back
M - mild carbonation and very smooth. Dry finish
O - as a big fan of hop bomb style beers this was a bit lacking in the hops department. Is still a very smooth IPA with a dry finish. Decent beer but not one of my favorite IPAs

A-Pours a clear caramel color. Good head. Frothy and dense. Solid lacing too.

S-Heavy of the malt. Caramel malt sweetness is heavy handed. Behind the malt blanket is a generic display of citrus and pine.

T-The sweetness makes this a balanced IPA. Caramel malt like it going out of style. Pine, grass and grapefruit hops. Slight metallic flavor in the back.

M-Medium bodied. Standard bitterness. Booze is well hidden.

O/D-Failed to impress. The metallic flavor was very slight which I am thankful for. Just another ordinary IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Appearance: Burnt orange with accents of light brown. Pours with about a half a finger of head. Low amount of carbonation active while drinking.

Smell: Chewy malt and cascade hops jump out right away. The Centennial and Citra hops add some sweet and sour accents to the aroma. Caramelized malt is very potent.

Taste: A smooth lightly hopped front greets the palate. Again, Cascade hops are the biggest player here but in this brew the hops seem to block each other out. Light finish, some hop sweetness but overall a forgettable end.

Mouthfeel: Very light, subdued hop bitterness.

Overall: A decent IPA. Aroma was more complex and interesting then the taste. This is a middle of the road brew.
