look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: slightly hazy; burnt orange coloring; 1 finger head that receded quickly to a thin film; moderate lacing;

S: a really nice combination of pine and tropical fruit;

T: dank pine up front morphing into some caramel malt in mid-palate; as it warmed, grapefruit became noticeable; moderately bitter long lasting finish with some residual pine resin;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; nicely crisp;

O: a really nice IPA; thoroughly enjoyable;

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer pours a lot of creamy white head and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. The beer itself is a nice clear copper. The smell has strong sweet notes mixed with grapefruit hops mixed with floral notes. The smell also has weak hints of pine. The beer taste is surprisingly different from the smell. The taste has strong grapefruit and pine notes with weak floral notes and a bit of malt sweetness to it. The beer also has a slightly yeast backbone that works very well with the hops. The mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodiedbut is a bit heavy. Biting carbonation with a dry finish. Overall, a fantastic IPA and worth getting. I'll definitely pick this one up again.
