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

A: Poured from the bottle into a Sam Smith's nonic-style pint glass. Body is coppery/orangey-amber with a small ivory head. Leaves some splotches of lace.

S: Not terribly strong in the nose; florally hops with a touch of caramel malt underneath.

T: Some underlying biscuity, caramel malt is followed up by the hops - think grapefruit and pine. Finishes quite dry, with a lingering almost lemony bitterness that creates a nice drying sensation mid-palate.

M: Call it medium-bodied; carbonation is active but not sharp.

O: By modern standards, this is almost APA rather than IPA territory, but it's real solid. Good hops over a nice malt foundation.

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

Golden/orange/amber color with a distinct radiance the head was bright white but wouldn't build.

Sweet floral hop aromas mix with a weaker malt body.

The taste has strong malt and barley characters. Hints of pine and burnt grass come towards the end. Perfumery and flowery tones hit the tongue at the aftertaste which are different but not necessarily bad.

Overall an interesting and pleasant IPA with good bones. A DIPA version could be quite stellar.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Pours a light copper color with a chill haze. Soapy white froth leaves some lace on the glass. Retention is OK.

SMELL: Resinous hops, muted citrus, pale malt sweetness, and caramel.

TASTE: Piney, resinous hops upfront with some grapefruit and stale pineapple. Bitterness is mild with a touch of warming alcohol. Smooth malt and citrusy hop.

FEEL: Medium bodied and well carbonated.

OVERALL: Just above average. Pretty decent little American IPA.
