3.76/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear orange, finger of white head, decent lacing

Smell is orange, sweet blood orange, honey, biscuit, pine, caramel, bready

Taste is biscuit up front, with decent showing of orange and mango in the middle, a pine bitterness, sweet honey and bready malt, finish is grapefruit peel bitterness, there is kind of a sweetness that is a bit strange that lingers and I could do without that.

Mouthfeel is medium light, heavy carbonation, pretty dry

its a fine IPA, but it a market with so many great ones I do think they could have come up with a better IPA if they truly want to become as big as they think they are going to.

give it a shot if you see it!

3.73/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours golden with a thin lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of grapefruit, orange, some lemon with a subtle bready pale malt backing. Some spicy pepper mixes in.

The taste is if citric and aspirin-like bitterness upfront with a late honey sweetness balancing it in the finish.

It has a chewy body. Smooth.

Overall, it's a nice standard American IPA.

3.48/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Bottle dated 9/17/13.

A - Clearish light orange/honey color and a good 2 finger white head. Fades into a collar that leaves behind blotches of lacing.

S - Typical citrus, grapefruit, and some light pine notes. There is some cracker and bread maltiness with hints of caramel and honey.

T - Citrus, grapefruit, and hoppy pine notes up front. Middle is cracker and bready malt with caramel and honey to knock back the bitterness. Finish is mostly bitter grapefruit.

M - Light bodied and easy to drink. Not a big biter presence on the palate.

O - Standard IPA offering that is not really great or complex. On the same level as many IPAs in the state. It should be known they do not currently have a bottling machine and the beer is trucked up to Point brewery, bottled, then distributed.
