look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
A : pours a lovely golden amber with a thick and frothy off white head that clings to the top of the brew.
S : a malty backbone that has an aroma mix of biscuits and honey hints. The hop is forward, with a mix of slight minty pine and a citrus back. The finish of hop is quick and light.
T : Starts with a fresh baked bread malt that blends into a hoppy middle. The hops are piney and have a tingling sensation (fresh!). The finish is like the smell, with a quick hop that is slightly citrus flavored, but not overwhelming or even prominent. Really light finish that is crisp and enjoyable.
M : not much lingering besides that tingling from the fresh hops. even feel and good body that ends a little fast.
Overall a pretty good ipa, but not overwhelmingly hoppy. The bitter could be upped and the flavor could be prolonged both in the middle and back end. As far as drinkability, this beer gets an A.

4.55/5 rDev +11.2%

Poured bottle into glass. 6.7% abv.
Appearance- A brilliant and clear dark red amber with a massive foamy head on it.
Smell- Citrus; orange and grapefruit. Not much else....did I mention citrus? lol
Taste- A dual blast of malt and hops. The initial malt blast is somewhat of a toasty bread character. The hops remain through the whole flavor profile until a spicy hot finish. Notes of grapefruit along with hints of sweet caramel too. Wickedly complex.
Mouthfeel- Heavy body of which is thick and creamy.
Overall- A solid example of a great IPA. This was the first craft beer I tried years ago so maybe it has a sentimental impression on me, but nevertheless, it is damn good if you dont mind a complex bitter blast. The hops linger as much as any other IPA. A must try if you're a hophead.
