4/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Golden orange, well carbonated. Frothy white head with good lacing.
S: Fantastic hoppy aromas: very piney especially, with some citrus and grapefruit. The hops are very clear without being super-strong.
T/M: Really nice and well-balanced. The hops hit up front, a little piney and bitter, but quickly balanced out by some sweetness.
O: A very solid IPA, not overly strong but really well-done and balanced.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy golden orange in color with some extremely light visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall beige head that reduces to a thin layer over the entire surface of the beer with some much thicker patches and a very thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.
S: There is a definite dominant presence of hops in the smell - I get both citrus/grapefruit as well as some floral hops. The aroma is bright but not overly intense, making it very approachable. There is also some underlying malty sweetness (I'm thinking it is more caramel like than anything else).
T: The flavor is similar to the smell but the balance between the malty sweetness and the hoppiness is even better. There is a definitely caramel malt sweetness upfront. The hops and the bitterness follow that but the bitterness is mild and not a palate destroyer. I can taste both the citrus/grapefruit as well as the floral hops with the grapefruit flavor being just a little stronger.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp and very refreshing.
O: Extremely easy to drink and definitely a top American IPA - this beer is just delicious and has a great flavor and aroma. The beer has a very inviting aroma and is quite approachable even to people that are not huge IPA fans (like my wife). This beer is definitely sessionable and one that I really enjoy. I would definitely get this one again (too bad it is not distributed locally to me).
