look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - pours a hazy gold with a standard head. Light lace. No bubbles.

S - citrus and semi-dank piney hops, mild pineapple, mild spicy yeast, faint bubblegum and a nice malty aroma. Overall, the aroma has a fairly robust intensity.

T - is similar to the aroma, but not quite as impressive. It's fresh and hoppy, but the flavor is ambiguously homogeneous with some distortion. It needs one element to pop forward. It's also a tad salty which doesn't seem to work well in this beer.

M - light-medium body. Smooth, medium bitterness with a short sustain. A little hot for an 8% beer.

O - a good American-Belgian IPA made with American hops that lacks coherence.

Batch# 50

Bright with just a little haze, brass and light copper color mix. Nice head after the pour, just a thin layer of foam that seems to last for all 22 ounces. Almost no bubbling and modest, at best, lacing.

Citric and bright with a little malty and yeasty sweetness. Smells bitter and hoppy for sure.

Orange adnd grapefruit zest seems to dominate the palate from start to finish. There's "some" toasty, biscuity malts lingering here and there. There's some boozey heat and a little yeasty, fruity, dryness lingering here and there. This is a bitter sipper, that seems to offer nothing exceptional.

Warm palate, resiny, dry mouthfeel. A bitter sipper worth a try if you are a hophead.

I love bitter beers, but this IPA seems to lack a little more balance and depth for the style, not bad, but not something I plan on picking up again.
