3.59/5 rDev -3.2%
A: Orange gold in color with a nice head that dissipated through the glass. very little lacing through the glass but
S: not sure if it was my sinuses but didn't get a super strong smell from the glass but did have hops and a hit of malt in the end smell. does smell good
T: while cold i had a strong hops flavor that evens out with malt as the beer warms the malts have a sweet bready taste leaving the hops to end on the finish of the beer over all taste is good but i honestly expected more hops
M: more carbonation than i expected that dissipates in the mouth. Carbonation takes away from the beginning flavor but in the middle the malts tend to pop through leaving a good hoppy flavor on the end.
O: Overall a good beer. okay hoppiness, and a nice balance of malt and bread notes. Like i said for an IPA i expected more hops but still was not disappointed. . Overall good and i would suggest trying it especially since its a seasonal brew

Poured an amber orange with a one finger white head that dissipated slowly into a thin ring with light lacing.
Aroma was weak and I could barely pickup hints of citrus and light malt.
Taste of citrus, pine, a light bready malt with a slight hop bite.
Mouth Feel was medium body, moderate carbonation which creates a fizzy feel at the beginning and settles into a smooth and slightly bitter finish.
Overall this is a good beer, well balanced, however, i a little more hop presence would make this a much better IPA.
