look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours out a pretty hazy golden honey color, with 3/4" of white head, which has below average retention and lacing. Not the most beautiful beer out there.

Smell: Some malts peek out initially and are followed by scents of citrus rind, grapefruit, and pine. Smells pretty bitter, but with some nice fruitiness as well.

Taste: A hint of caramel malt is present up front, but is quickly overshadowed by citrus, bitter grapefruit and orange rind, a far amount of florals, and pine. Definitely a hop bomb, but not a well integrated as some I've tried.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light-medium bodied with a low amount of carbonation. A bit prickly and not particularly smooth drinking. Not bad all in all, but definitely not what I would call a world class IPA.

On tap at George St Alehouse in New Brunswick.

Arrives in a pint glass with a finger of off white sticky foam. Amber in color. Aroma is hoppy, citrus grapefruit and piney. Nice aroma.

Quite bitter with a huge hop flavor... quite nice. Long lingering bitterness, with a passing attmpt to balance with a touch of malty sweetness. A true west coast IPA. I've had this in bottles, but fresh from a keg seems to accentuate the potent hop flavors. Excellent.
