3.75/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured bottle into glass. 6.6% abv

Appearance- Pours a deep orange with a moderate head that dissipates fast. Quite cloudy.

Smell- Quite a good amount of citrus, not too much malt to the nose. Lemon and grapefruit become evident in aroma.

Taste- A decent amount of pine followed but hints of citrus fruit but not as much as in the nose. A biscuit like sweetness blends into a dry hop finish. The after taste of hops is minimal and not super strong as many IPAs. The citrus sweetness lasts longer than the bitterness for sure.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with a creamy texture. The moderate amount of carbonation could have a bit more to it.

Overall- A solid IPA offering from my local brewery. I had this on draft at the Perk and it was better than a bottle but that's a given with all beer. Still this beer is fitting to its style. The citrus flavor paired well to the malt here. Despite the lower amount of carbonation, this is a damn smooth IPA and quite an easy one to drink.

Copper slightly hazed appearance looks great billowing head off white cream color, with fine even textured dispread lacing on my pint glass. Aroma ripe mango, citrus in the backend, a bit of earthy character fades with each sniff. Flavors cereal grains, sweet malts, hop fruit as in mango, citrus, and a bit of ripened pineapple balances out in the backend with some hop bitterness and powdered yeast bready quality. Overall impressive IPA from PA, I can't wait until this gets perfected and refined it will be firing on all cylinders.
