4.43/5  rDev +5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Really appreciate the brew.

Poured from the odd shaped 12 oz bottle into my snifter.

A very clear amber color. Neat. Excellent head over three fingers thick, that disappears into a strongly staying head of off white color. Super awesome lacing. Sticks like gum. Some bubbles seen rising up. Perfect and top notch.

Aroma: Some citrus and flowery aroma upfront. A nice malt backbone that is sweet, caramel and bread like. Very nice but not a lot of strength. Fades rather fats and i am assuming my nose is now overpowered by a lot of smells.

Taste: Excellent taste. Though not a lot of bitterness, but for a single IPA it does the trick. Earthy, slightly citrus, piney and bit oil like. Some bitterness upfront with a nice thick bready malt middle and good enough bitterness towards the end. I like the taste. Bitter finish.

Mouth feel: More medium bodied and slightly fuller. Moderate carbonation. Mild hop derived astringency. Good alcohol strength and no burning sensation what soever.

Serving type: bottle

3.59/5  rDev -14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This beer is alright, I have had too many great ones lately. But this one is not bad. I need to try the more hardcore ones.

Appearance: Dark golden amber. Some Head but not too much not a bad beer on the above average account.

Smell: Not a lot going on compared to others .But it was a good beer.

Taste: Enjoyable, some hops, actually strong on the hops but it also has a sweet malt backbone that balances things out. Not the best tasting beer that I have had but for a four pack you can do much better, in my opinion.

Overall: I didnt think this was a bad beer but there are better ones too. Solidly above average but not outstanding.

Serving type: bottle
