3.58/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Clear golden orange with frothy tan head with great retention and lacing. Citrusy aroma. Strong citrus with a hint of pine hops with very little malt to hold them up. A dry, bitter finish. Smooth but somewhat thin with good carbonation.
I wasn't sure if this one was outstanding or just simple. Maybe just simply outstanding? In the end, it was a good strong hop character in relation to the malts but seemed somewhat subdued in overall taste. It looks absolutely perfect and is very easy to drink so it's definitely nothing to avoid unless you like more balanced IPA's.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Sam Adams pint glass
Flows into the glass a beautiful crystal-clear gold with lots of carbonation. A stiff pour yields a massive head, very foamy with big bubbles. It condenses fairly fast and leaves a a lot of lacing.
The aroma is quite nice. I get citrus, pine, a bit of rising bread, orange peel, grass and a hint of onion.
This beer tastes great. Layers of hop flavors. Juicy citrus up front, some pine and a nice lingering and spicy bitterness. As it warms, a little bit of grassiness and even a hint of onion. There's also some malty sweetness hiding in the background.
The mouthfeel is light to medium with a bit of stickiness.
overall, a really good IPA that I wish I could obtain on a regular basis.
