3.86/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into 12oz Pint Glass

A - Pours a nice dark hazy orange, non see through. Finger width head dies down quick leaving almost none at all.

S - A lot of Citrus right off the bat...smelling notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach. Not really getting any malty notes at all.

T - Getting a lot of peach and orange and tads of lemon in the middle that are poking through. Has a clean and smooth finish and just a tad bitter, leaving the back of the tongue tingling.

M - very crisp feeling IPA. good carbonation and light to medium body.

Overall this is a great " west coast" style IPA. Tons of citrus and even a little bit of pine on the finish. For big hop heads who enjoy the citrusy, juicy IPA. Awesome beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottled on July 9th. Consumed on Sept 2nd. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an IPA glass.

A - Burnt orange in color with no cloudiness. Poured very little head. Distinct lines of carbonation. Very faint irregular lacing as the beer recedes.

S - Hints of lemon, pine, grapefruit. Can almost smell the hoppy bitterness.

T - Intense flavor. Lemon and tropical fruit followed by a bitter grapefruit rind. Completely hides ABV. No malt notes.

M - Dry with a high level carbonation. Complements taste of beer very well.

O - Wow. Highly recommended. Refreshing hoppy citrus mouth orgy.
