look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a delicious light brown reddish color, lots of head into my Bells goblet. My nose is picking up a smidgen of honey with some peach notes. The smell is alluring and very heavy hitting. The taste is a hop smack to the face with a nice sustained bitterness throughout mixed with the floral tendencies. moutfeel is a medium/heavy carbonation with a lightweight body giving it a unique feeling as it goes down.

Not a world beating IPA, but I definitely enjoyed it. It's for the true hop heads the like the bitterness bite in their beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: I wish there was much more foam, as there is very little to speak of. Foam is also scare, but the hazy, orange, unfiltered color is outstanding.

Smell: Honey and peaches with a strong pine finish.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Initially there is sour lemon and pine. A strong flavor of apricots and honey also resonates throughout. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, but with decent crispness.

Overall Drinkability: Not as good as the original, but still tasty and quite strong.

16oz : SN IPA Glass

Pours a beautiful hazy, coppery golden red with a thick, foamy off white head.

Big resiny, citric, grapefruit hops. With a solid, but unobtrusive caramel malt backbone.

Medium+ body, lightly syrupy, oily mouthfeel.

A very well done IPA. Big hop character, with a large malt backbone as well.
