4.58/5 rDev +7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Pours a hazy gold color with plenty of visible carbonation and topped by a thin, white head that leaves plenty of lacing behind.
It's intoxicating! A sweet, malty base supports tons of citrus. Not much here in the way of hops except for faint pine notes.
Simply put?.. Epic! Up front, you're treated to a bouquet of sweet, tropical fruit and a bit of malt that concludes with the perfect amount of bitterness and some grassy hoppy goodness. Incredibly balanced. Incredibly delicious!
Despite its presentation, there is hardly any noticeable carbonation from this medium-bodied beer.
This is a personal favorite of mine and a frequent visitor to the shelves of my fridge. It should be a frequent in yours too!

4.36/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 6 September 2013
Appearance: A clear yellow-gold color with a good one-and-a-half finger white, frothy head. Left magnificent lacing down the edges of the glass.
Smell: Very clean floral and grapefruit hop notes in the nose.
Taste: A magnificent blend of hops and sweet malts. This is one incredibly balanced IPA- there is a strong hop presence, but a very nice malt backbone that really carries the taste of this beer. Unlike other IPAs where the maltiness seems to play a secondary role, or becomes apparent on the palate late in the tasting process, the sweeter malts are detectable throughout a sip and play well with the hoppiness.
Mouthfeel: Great carbonation for the style makes the beer appropriately full-bodied.
Overall: One of the most balanced IPAs I've had, and a very good one. I like how the hops and malt played off each other during the entire sip, rather than one heavily dominating up front/on the back end. Would buy again and highly recommend.
