4.23/5 rDev -0.9%
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours an almost clear deep orange with just a little bit of sediment winding up in the glass. One finger head slowly fades into a nice fluffy cap over the beer.
Big hoppy aroma that leans more towards pine rather than fruit. There is some orange and pineapple but this one steers away from the super tropical. Real nice bready malt notes underneath giving the aroma a great balance.
Lots of pine and earth upon tasting with hardly a hint of fruit. Quite assertive maltyness too lending an really nice balance. Strong bitterness throughout but very appropriate for the style. For not being strong on fruity hops, the beer has a real "juicy" character that is refreshing. Mouthfeel is full but a little too sticky for my liking.
Overall, a very nicely balanced IPA and one of the better ones that is widely available. Not Earth-shattering by any means but one to definitely enjoy regularly.

4.14/5 rDev -3%
Very pretty head with a fluffy consistency and a bright whiteness. The color is a cloudy cider like hue and a radiance that is quite striking.
The scent is lemony with hints of pine. The lemon and citrus wins out but is a touch subtle.
The taste is smooth citrus fruit, lemons and malts; nice and easy. There's a piney backbone but the lemony citrus wins out.
I'm very impressed with the easy, tastiness of this IPA and recommend it highly!
