3.93/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Hazy pink-orange, big soapy off-white head with spotty lacing. Not much carbonation to be seen. Silver and black bottle artwork is certified badass.

S: Lots of pine, some citrus in the back, too. Full and rounded.

T: The strong pine aromas have been mellowed by some softer malt notes. Citrus fruit notes mingle in there as well, but aren't major players. Not very bitter, but super dry as well. It seems the flavor has been diluted a bit compared to the nose. I still love it, but people who enjoy tons of hops will probably be disappointed.

M: Crisp, great carbonation.

O: Awesome easy drinking beer. Perfect for my hopbomb-averse palate if I still want to get some hop flavors and refreshment. I'll be returning to this one. (734 characters)

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness date? SOB 2014.

A: really nice golden amber with about 2" of head with some lacing. Didn't last a real long time.

S: hints of citrus, but mostly hops. Not strongly piney.

T: not nearly as complex as I anticipated. Some grapefruit and hops and that's about it.

M: pretty light bodied with moderate carbonation. Refreshing, but not my ideal IPA.

O: Glad to have tried this. I love supporting the small breweries and thanks to a friend that picked this up for me on trade. But, not overly impressed. I'll stick with my PNW IPA's. (589 characters)

4.08/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright red with tan lacing and foam. I definitely did not expect a Red IPA.

Smell: Strong pine and grapefruit.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Grapefruit with a cookie backing. Very yeasty as well, which gives it an excellent mouthfeel.

Overall Drinkability: An IPA that Erik the Red would be proud of. (302 characters)
