look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Deep burnt orange color almost an amber color. About 1 finger of nice foamy off white head. Very clear with a good amount of carbonation bubbles.

S - Nice piney floral smell, has a dank character to it. A little bit of citrus, grapefruit, orange, lemon. Not too strong in the nose though.

T - Similar to the nose but way more pronounced. First you get the nice citrus, then a finish of piney floral bitterness.

M - Smooth and creamy, medium body. On the high end of medium carbonation.

O - This was a pretty solid IPA but it lacked the citrus punch I like in my IPA's. It reminded me of a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but less grapefruit'y. Overall a solid beer though and well balanced.
