3.18/5 rDev -10.4%
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a two finger head of off-white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a heavy level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is nice and interesting aroma overall. It has a sweet aroma of tangerine and caramel mixed with some melon smells of honeydew and cantaloupe. Along with these aromas are some nice hop smells of a grapefruit citrus as well as a subtle aroma of a floral and grassy hop.
Taste – The taste begins with a malty and bready flavor mixed with some sweeter flavors of caramel and tangerine. The caramel fades quickly, but is replaced by more tangerine and some other sweeter flavors of light fruits. The hop is very light upfront with just a hint of grapefruit. The grapefruit grows a bit stronger as the flavor advances, but never really grows all that potent. A little bit of a grassy and floral hop flavor come at the very end, mixing with the rest and leaving a rather sweet and malty lightly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. A bit thicker of a body would have been better for the malty and fruit flavors all while helping bolster the hop flavors of the brew.
Overall – The flavor was alright, but not really all that hoppy and sorta weak for an IPA. Nothing too outrageously good here.

3.64/5 rDev +2.5%
A- poured a deep golden color with thick white frothy head that left a nice ring of lacing throughout. I don't see it as being hazy, I see it as ALMOST clear. Very nice looking beer.
S- citrus and hops that's what I smell. Citrus and hops.
T- fairly sweet in the begining like malt and grapefruit? Not real sure but I taste some citrus followed by slight bitterness of hops. Good for an IPA but not my favorite style. Well balanced for IPA
M- very smooth medium bodied beer. Excellent. Only complaint is the dryness.
O- well brewed Well balanced IPA. One of my favorites in this style of beers.

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.
