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

Pours a cloudy orange color, nice carbonation, nice small off-white head which lasted awhile, some nice islands and sticky lacing throughout the drink. The nose is slightly sweet, hoppy, slightly malty, grapefruit, and some caramel. The taste is hoppy, and plenty of grapefruit/caramel going on. The finish is slightly dry. Medium body. Very drinkable, I heard many good things about this IPA for about a year now, well it is a mighty fine IPA at that, will definitely buy more of this in the future.

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

A- hazy orange with a nice 1+ finger white head qith great head retention. Nice lacing is left after the head goes away.

S- heavy on the pine scent with nose citrus notes to support.

T- big bitterness up front that carries all the way to the end. Bitterness is much like the nose, mainly piney and some citrus in there too. Piney bitterness lingers long after the sip is gone. Unbalanced the way i like it

M- light to medium feel with similar carbonation. Finish leaves my mouth somewhat wet. Nice

O- well made IPA. Everything is good in this one.
