look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: solid brown longneck, with an acceptable non-macro label.

Appearance: a solid, impressive looking beer. A slightly hazy copper-orange with a very impressive head. Nigh 3-finger with a thick and creamy consistency that drops to mountainous peaks. Incredibly longevity and lacing. Top notch!

Aroma: the usual American IPA-style of 'singe your nose hairs off' hop overload. Still, citrus, pine and grapefruit are clearly noticeable.

Taste: not as much hop flavour as I was expecting, more simply hop bitterness. Not as well rounded as I (and my wallet) had hoped - just a fair ol' whack of bitterness with no discernible flavour.

Aftertaste: follows from the taste, but with - if possible - even more bitterness.

Mouth feel: mouth feel is pretty much spot-on. Reasonably thick with limited yet fine carbonation.

Overall: certainly not the best AIPA I have had - too much hop bitterness and not enough discernible flavour. But hey - not bad as either a sipper or a few gulps of ABV wipe-out.
