3.78/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours an oh-so clear golden hue with a splash of orange that looks reminiscent of apple juice. The last couple of weeks have been nothing but stouts and porters for me, so it's refreshing to see some sharp, crystal clear colors for a change. White foamy head, but it's dieing fast! Some great lacing throughout this beer's final moments.
Smell: A fruit medley (pineapple, mostly) mixed with piney hop aromas. I'm not picking up much (or any) malt in the nose.
Taste: A light, delicate flash of malt followed by a rushing tide of hop bitterness with a long, spicy finish.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp and quiet thirst-quenching. Medium-light mouthfeel with a fair amount of carbonation. Not bad! It's got good...
Drinkability: While India Pale Ale is not my favored style, I'm really enjoying this, as its got just the right amount of hops for me. Definitely as sessionable as an IPA can be.
Thanks again, Avery!

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.
