4.9/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A - Pours a hazy, golden hue. Minimal lacing with about a finger of head.

S - citrus, pine, resin, juicy. Just a ton going on here. Salivary glands going crazy with just a whiff.

T - One of a few IPA's where the taste actually exceeds the smell. Tons of citrus and tropical fruit along with some pine and bitter herb flavor. The bitterness is so well integrated. Probably the most balanced IPA I've had.

M - Bitterness is present but not overpowering. Smooth mouthfeel and nice, lingering finish.

O - This is the most enjoyable IPA I've had the pleasure of drinking. You can only get it on tap or to go in a growler so I've only had it super fresh. Simply the cleanest, purest flavors. I could easily knock back an entire growler just because it is so enjoyable to drink. World class.

Serving type: growler
