3.5/5 rDev -9.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
A: Nearly crystal clear appearance with a golden copper color. Head quickly settled after building a finger tall, white in color. nice lacing as the foam fell.
S: Moderate grapefruit, earthy and pine hop aroma. medium to low bready and toasty notes. No esters.
T: Moderate bitterness with the pine and grapefuit flavors coming through. Solid malt backbone consistint with the aroma, bready, crust and dough flavors. The balance is on the hop side (duh) I'd say 4:3. After-taste is a more dank piney flavor that lingers on the tongue. There is a slight mineral character I pickup as the hops wear on the pallete.
M: Crisp and clean drinkability with medium carbonation levels. The body is medium-low with no alcohol warming, just a slight harshness from the bitterness.
O: A nice drinking IPA with a solid malt character. I think the bottle I had might have had some age on it, so I'd like a fresher example, but.. middle of the road as far as IPAs go.

4.36/5 rDev +13%

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.
