4.31/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: pours a dark copper with a slight haze, thick, sticky, long lasting head.
S: earthy and dank hemp; tropical fruit; pineapple, goji berry.
T: lots of bitterness up front with that earthy and juicy dankness permeating. A toasty, bready malt backbone emerges at the aftertaste. Definitely more bitterness in the front end than in the back. Finishes mouth drying and astringent.
M: medium full bodied without heavy carbonation.
O: a lot of breweries are making "girly" ipa's that are hoppy without being astringent and bitter. This ain't one of em! (551 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured a semi-clear amber body with one finger of thick, fluffy white head. A very nice looking IPA, very true to form. Scents of tangerine flesh, medium-light lemon zest and lemon, medium-light grassy hop aromas, light pine resin and medium-light levels of biscuit-like and sweet pale malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a nice, bright IPA. Not the most unique aroma profile, but solid and pleasant. Flavor begins with medium bitterness with notes of pine resin, citrus peel, light earthy, herbal and floral hop flavors and a light sweetness of tangerine flesh and pale malt with its hints of caramel. Middle is slightly more bitter with notes of pine resin, orange peel, grapefruit peel, a sweet malt backbone. Finish is bitter with notes of pine resin, cedar, grapefruit peel, floral and grassy hops and a lightly sweet malt backbone. Aftertaste is pine resin, grapefruit peel and light malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a nicely balanced West Coast IPA, made true to form. Pleasant but not anything new. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-light carbonation and a prickly middle that finished slick and oily. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a nice standard IPA, easily drinkable and pleasant. Overall this is a good IPA. It has a nice aroma and flavor, balanced quite well between hop and malt for the style, with a pleasant mouthfeel. Not bad. (1,368 characters)

Pours a hazy orange tinged golden color with a soapy, white head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of bright hops.

Tastes of the bright hops with a solid malt base. Hops lead off with citrus, herbs, and a bit of earthiness. A moderate amount of bitterness. Malts come in and some caramel and toasted bread. Sweetness is somewhat light, but helps to balance things out. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a nice IPA, but nothing special. (533 characters)
