3.63/5 rDev -1.6%
Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brownish/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus hops, a bit of pine as well. Taste is bitter, citrus, some pine, very dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality and solid beer.

3.75/5 rDev +1.6%
Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Bottled May 12th 2014.
Deep bronze orange, and quite clear body. Good rising amount of carbonation, capped with a very large off white swiss cheese head. Fist full tall, with large bubbles on creation, and speckled lacing.
Nose hints towards malted brown bread and toasty bread crust. Hop angle comes second with a hint of citrus and tropical fruit notes that don't come out to distinguishable.
Palate comes simply with a nice mix of malt sweetness first of caramel and toast, with the hops matching towards some citrus and mostly some dank flavors. Thick solid malt density with a bit of sweetness taking away from the hops a bit. Good chewy body, with some leafy and green bitterness on the finish to go with it. Hits more to dank and earth than citrus it seems.
Still overall it's quite an enjoyable IPA, but seems a little different than advertised.
