look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a 1 inch white head that persists. Dense lacing.
S: Floral citrusy grapefruit and a bit of orange hop aroma is the star but the sweet malt shines through. Not a tremendous malt presence but it seems more evident than the typical dank IPA.
T: Citrus, pine and mild earthy hops hit the palate quickly and dominate the show. Its not an overpowering bitterness, but a great showcase of the malt flavors. Crisp and clean flavors with a nice malt sweetness in the background. The A bit of tartness and mild sweet lemon in the finish and the bitterness doesn't linger on the palate in a harsh way but leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
M: Medium body with a clean and slightly acidic finish. Moderate carbonation, correct for the style. Slight tingle on the tongue.
O: This is one of my favorite IPA's. It doesn't overwhelm the palate with a dank bitterness but masterfully controls the bitterness while letting other flavors in the beer 'take a bow'. It's the closest thing I've found that I could consider a session IPA. I could drink a lot of this. Crisp and citrusy finish and the lasting aftertaste is that of a pleasant grapefruit and citrus hop, as it should be! Try this and you'll buy a lot of it.

A - Thick white two finger head. No lacing really. Crystal clear amber color. Light carbonation bubble. All sediment was at bottom of bottle so second pour was cloudy.
S - Sweet tropical fruits. Passion fruit, orange, grapefruit.
T - A malty front followed by a citrus orange peel taste with some sweetness. Finishes off with a hoppy bitterness.
M - Medium thickness, and some alcohol and carbonation burn.
O - Sweet smell and the slight sweet taste does not disappoint. Pretty enjoyable.
