look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a wine multipurpose chalice.
Poured an amber semi translucent liquid with orangey tints, formed a half finger offwhite head with medium to little retention, little belgian lacing left behind.
Nose composed of a sweet mild boozyness, orange rind, other citrusy components, honey and beewax, flowers, lemongrass and similar herbaceous, horseblanket, woody, hint of pineapple.
Taste- Really well balanced, not as bitter as i expected, malt sweetness and hop biterness are round, citric and herbaceous components are less intense a bit of guava is picked, and woody horseblanket comes forward in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel- medium body, non sticky, alcohol well hidden, lightly carbonated. back and side of the tongue tings with biterness, mild heat in throat.
Overall a very tasty and rounded IIPA, persistent rich aftertaste. IBUs and alcohol not apparent. Couldnt find the date of bottleing but i suspect this bottle is probably a year or two old.
