4.18/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Looks a nice golden color with a good finger of head that leaves some nice lacing.

S- Has a nice fresh citrus scent along with some fresh hoppyness. Doesn't have the explosively fresh smell you might get from a Pliny the Elder or a Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Extra! but it is definitely has a nice citrus hoppyness to it.

T- Comes out with the wrath of the hop. Pretty bitter and leaves a strong hoppy after taste which is nice. It also has a good amount of citrus on the palate like pineapple lemon and grapefruit.

M- The strong sticky pine sticks to the tongue and the liquid goes down smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Not really any alcohol burn going on, just the strong bitterness.

D- Definitely a beer I could drink over and over no problem. Taste is brought out that much more when eaten with food. Up there as one of my favorites for just IPAs.

4.36/5  rDev +13%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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.
