4.33/5  rDev +20.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Golden amber/tad of burnt orange, tightly packed but moderately thin head that stuck around and stained the glass a bit!

S-I love me some citric hops...I love me some malt to support the citric hops, and I love when there is a promise of bitterness to follow this portion of the review...

T-....Yup...got some orange to match the appearance, some pine, grapefruit, and...wait...this is a borderline session IPA...awesome! So you get this nice little bight at the end that would usually accompany a higher ABV IPA but this one has a nicely packed malt sweetness that punches right after the bitter finish. COOL.

M-Relatively lighter than Burning Bush and the Hefe if I remember correctly, but we're talking a 5.2%'er against an 8%er and a hefe, which has a nice bit of diastic enzymes giving the 'pillow' for your palate. I'd say its a damn fine beer and it will be revisited.

O-As mentioned before, nice and low in alcohol. I've been tending away from stronger beer lately and have been looking for an IPA that can hang with my hop addiction. Here we go.

Serving type: on-tap
