3.95/5  rDev +11%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz brown bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours an amber color with an orange hue. Head is eggshell wiht lots of sticky lace which hangs around awhile.

smell is citrus floral with some background sweetness. quite refreshing smelling.

Taste is up front very floral and a citrus skin bite. mid palate is lots of sweet malt. the back end is not nearly as bitter as I expected from the nose. It finishes rather quietly with only very slight hints at bitterness.

This one feels slightly thin for a beer of 6+ ABV. Carbonation is right on, but the finish is a tad weak. with that being said, it would pair well with spicy food as the front end on first drink would stand up well and then it would finish easy and clean for more food.

I wouldnt go out of my way to get this again, but if it showed up in a box on my doorstep I would place it immediately into the fridge for consumption :)

3.74/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden color with a slight haziness. Thick, frothy, off white head that dissipates to a lacing that lasts throughout. Looks great.

Smell: Smells sweet at first, then comes with floral hoppiness.

Taste: Floral and citrus at first, then the hops pick up, not overly bitter like some IPAs, a little sweet.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, medium body, get a nice sting of alcohol that is not overbearing.

Overall: A nice IPA, it looks great and is easily drinkable. Recommended.
