This is simply a terrifically-hopped beer. You can tell from the smell that its not over done like some AIPA's, but is instead nicely balanced with the malt and grains. The initial taste is similar to a micro-brewed lager, but the hops add a nice kiss to the end. After the first sip the hops are easier to discern, but again do not become overpowering. There is also a hint of spices, especially coliander. The drinkability is also through the roof.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: poured into my yuengling beer glass, and it is a nice caramel color. Had a head, but I let it warm up a little (so I could taste even more hops), and the head is gone now.

Smell: pleasing. Slight smell of hops, which does not act as false advertising.

Taste: a delightful, balanced flavor of hops and malt. It doesn't have an overpowering flavor of hops (see Stegmaier IPA), but the hops presence is definitely there, even to my sometimes shoddy tastebuds.

Mouthfeel: not a light beer, I probably wouldn't want to enjoy this outside on a hot summer day, but it's a good beer to drink here in my apartment.

Overall: Stan recommends.
