look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served in a Becker pint. No bottled on date.

Pours slightly hazy, lemon - gold color. Firm, one-finger, white head that dies slowly.

Nose is faint esters, predominate pine, and just a swirl of orange or grapefruit depending on the sniff. Nice, but faint.

Really like this piney and citrus-y palate! Pine really carries through the whole drink, only the slightest bread malt hitting at mid-palate and in the finish. The citrus reminds of grapefruit, with ester notes popping up in the swallow.

Feel is a light-medium, okay carb. A little watery.

Hop profile shines on the palate, less so on the nose. I would definitely have this again. A solid IPA, without a doubt.

Serving type: bottle
