4/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
5% ABV on bottle, no best by/bottled on date.
Hazy copper pour with a solid 2 fingers of near-white head. Very frothy and thick with lots of bubbles.
Sweet aroma of citrus and sourdough bread, with a dash of pine needle
Bright and hoppy on the nose. A little thin at first, then a nice warm pretzel taste enters the picture. Pine bitterness in the middle. Finishes very clean, somewhat bitter yet very refreshing. Lingering bitter trail left on the palate.
Ringed lacing in the glass with white film floating on head throughout. Very nice.

Enjoyed on tap from a 22oz pilsner glass. Honestly was not too impressed my first time having it but had much higher regards the second time around and here is the review..
A - Pours a dark orange/reddish-gold, 1 finger head, leaves white lacing around the glass with a slowly dissipating head that remains until the end.
S - Fresh hops, piney, citrusy. Very appeasing.
T - Taste follows the smell with fresh hops that are not as powering as the smell leads to believe. Very balanced for an IPA, not incredibly hoppy in the mouth but leaves a lingering hoppy after taste.
M - Feel is medium, not too heavy in the mouth, good mix of flavors and overall very drinkable.
O - Very enjoyable beer, I liked it much more the second, third, and fourth go around. Fairly unique for an IPA in its balance and drinkability. This one is easy to have a few of.

The beer starts off looking great poured into a tulip. Dark gold with a two finger head which clung to the sides for the whole ride. On the nose we have great citrus notes with a hint of flora and pine. Taste follows suit. Great forward pine and malt with a solid citrus finish. Great balance of bitterness. Mouthfeel is very good for the style. A lot of IPAs go for the hop bomb these days which can overpower the palate but this one does quite well. Smooth carb and very smooth bitter notes. Overall a great IPA. As opposed to others of the style, you could definitely take down a 6 of these without being overwhelmed. Can't wait for them to bottle Bodhi!
