Thanks to Kurmaraja for this one. Poured into straight pint glass. poured a semi-hazy orange color with less than 1/4 inch of just off white head that had low retention and above moderate lacing.

The aroma was fairly typical for the style, citrus and pine hops with a mild malt presence. Same on the tongue, except for addition of a slight funk, that I found a bit distracting.

The body was solidly medium for the style, and somewhat sticky. Drinkability was decent, I'd drink a few now and then if they were around. Overall, a good, solid example of the style, not particularly notable for being good or bad. Probably worth a shot if you see it.

Very clear golden body with a finger of white foamy head. Very fragrant. I get the traditional Simcoe scent, which is ditchweed for me as some say cat pee. There is some faint citrus peel scent too. There is a bite on the front of the taste that kicks you. Just a tad oily mouthfeel, kind of what I want from a good IPA. Dank, flavorful IPA. Well balanced and highlights the Simcoe hop.

Appearance - golden colored with a hue of red. White two finger head that leaves a great lacing on the side of the glass as it dissipates.

Smell - hops. A bit of pine, floral and grass.

Taste - a perfectly brewed IPA. Perfect amount of hops, not tons of bitterness but a nice amount.

Mouthfeel - A OK

Overall - a very good IPA
