I think this is somehow my first Birdsong beer - I've been overlooking them for years until this fateful night. My first impression was that this was not a beer that deserved to be overlooked - a classically crafted IPA - citrus forward and oily with a moderate stinging bitterness. The malt bill supports this nicely without being too noticeable. This was good - the rest of the birdsong lineup will have to wait until my next eastward venture though.

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

Appearance: a nice strong orange color. Good clarity. And about a finger of a whitish head that leaves a bit if lacing.

Smell: juicy and not too bitter hops. A smack of citrus followed by mellow notes of florals and spice

Taste: juicy hops open up. Mixing with floral and a good spicy hop kick. Nice hop flavor backed by a nice bready malt

Mouthfeel: nice drinking. Medium body. Moderate bitterness.

Overall: awesomely crafted ipa. Could easily be a go to/ standard if it was easy to find in bottles. Very tasty drinkable and spot on in all aspects
