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

This was good/great IPA with great west coast hop head aromas and a bitter pine forward taste. The pour was dark amber orange clear with carbonation heavy bubble throughout. The smell was very good. Pine resin and that fantastic hoppy citrus I expected. The taste was very bitter forward, piney and malt and caramel were there. The citrus I expected just wasn't quite there but for those loving the hoppy bitter IPA with more malt note this would hit the spot. Mouthfeel was dry and slightly sour after drinking. Almost a hoppy farmhouse ale feel.
This was overall a good beer, not quite as fruit and citrus as others but still a good IPA for the bitter lovers
