3.35/5  rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I thought the appearance and smell was pretty decent. It smelled really hoppy and strong. But compared to some of the other IPAs I have tried it was not my favorite at all. I believe the balance was a little off. The mouthfeel was good and I could probably drink this again. But I probably wont.

3.91/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a pint can into a tall tulip.

A - Nice amber color with about a finger of light tan soap bubble head. Short retention and sticky lacing.

S - Nice and balanced citusy hop aroma.

T - Tastes like an IPA. Bright and citrusy up front with a bitter hop finish. Nothing life changing or Earth shattering, but not bad by any means.

M - Crisp with a nice dry finish.

O - A good IPA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Serving type: can
