look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dark caramel colour, finger of head with solid retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Sweet citrus and earthy cedar and pine hops with a caramel backbone.

T - Much like the nose, the earthy hops dominate with some cedar and pine notes dominant alongside a lemon iced tea hop. The caramel comes through nicely alongside the hops, making for a nice balance.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and surprisingly wet.

O - A very tasty American IPA and a solid example of the style. Certainly a surprise and would be nice to be able to grab a 6-er of this at leisure.

Review from notes taken on 1/30/10 during a side by side tasting with wild devil.

Brown bottle with a best by date of 2/9/10. Pours an amber color, partially cloudy with a finger of white head and nice lace upon the glass. Faint particles stuck in suspension. Aroma of citrus hops that flows through the taste. Citrus and grass predominent both in smell and taste that finish bitter from the hops. Medium feel with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall well done.
