3.65/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Off the pour quite an almost crystal clear body, textbook pale amber in color it seems, with little rising carbonation. Head is bright white, makes three fingers and settles nicely, somewhat not too uniform, but looking alright.

Nose is a fleshy grapefruit, mild sweetness with a lingering hop bitter, airy, in control relaxed even. Toasty brown sugar lingers a little on the sweetness after some time. Quite good.

Palate hits with an obvious pine blast, mixing with a little bit of sweetness. Malt action on this doesn't quite hit the heights in the palate at all, finishes with a nice brown sugar sweetness. After taste is very fleeting and it doesn't stick around.

Overall it's not too bad, but in the big realms of the major players this isn't quite hitting all the notes. I could easily drink this again though, but far from my favorite or a simple go to when there are so many other IPAs out there that I enjoy more so.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: two finger white head with excellent lacing on a crystal clear golden with slight amber hue body.

S: pretty musty, a little wet sock hop like, light caramel malts, tangerine and orange citrus.

T: fairly malty with candied oranges, caramel, grassy, floral and mildy bitter hops.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: The beer is balanced but the hops aren't quite up to par. The bitterness verges on too much resin and wet sock hop mustiness for me.

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown bottle with pry-off cap poured in a pint glass. Purchased from Whole Foods in San Antonio, Texas.

Pale gold in colour and slightly cloudy. White head is 1/4 inch on the pour but recedes to a thin ring with islands of foam. Strings of lacing here and there.

Nice juicy smelling beer. Juicy fruit gum and citrus fruit. Caramel, grapefruit, lemon, pear. Mouth-watering.

More of the aroma on the palate. Starts off nicely balanced between the caramel sweet malts and citrus hops. Hops gradually and slowly take over more and more as we get closer and closer to the finish which is strongly hopped and citrus bitter.

Medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. A little oily feel but it gets cut by the hop presence.

Overall a delicious brew. I really enjoyed it when I was down in Texas at the end of March, early April. Top notch IPA.

4.08/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a standard pint glass.

The beer is a golden orange with a nice creamy head that dissipates to a film. Pretty good lacing coats the glass. Pine, faint grapefruit rind, and hops dominate the aroma. The beer tastes clean and to the point. Dry hops, bitter grapefruit, and a bit of woody pine notes are all in here. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and dry.

Overall, A pretty good beer, point blank. Good hops and all of the other things associated with a decent IPA. Worth it and may be revisited.
