3.58/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Amber color with a fairly small white head that faded fairly quickly. Excellent clarity with some legs.

Smell: Pine trees,moderate citrus fruit aromas and a mild bready note.

Taste:The pine scent and citrus fruit aromas show up in the taste profile. There is a mild sweetness in the taste profile. The beer finishes on a bitter hop note.

Mouth-feel: On the light side of medium-bodied with a modest level of carbonation.

Overall: Nice looking beer with a good nose but the sweetness in the taste profile is odd for an IPA and make the taste profile a little less crisp than it could be.

3.48/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper gold with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is a bit subdued - sugary fruits and some piney hops.

The flavor is sweet sugary fruits with bready malts and some grassy, spicy hops that have decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a bit overly sweet and sugary. It has decent bitterness, but not a lot of hop flavor.
