4.31/5  rDev +16.2%
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!

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.

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

Appearance: Bright orange with an egg whipped head. Nice spotted lacing. Head retention was minimal, but it had nice volume.

Nose: Honey, with a little bit of cloves and mint.

Taste: Crisp up front. Some lemon meringue and sweet orange.

Notes: For a simple IPA, this was fantastic! I'm pleased that they didn't bill it as an imperial or a double. This is their IPA...and they rocked it.

Bottle I brought to share at AndrewK's tasting.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is solid but fairly simple for the style.
