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

Possibly the best IPA I have had to date. For the longest time I wasn't much of an IPA fan - way too bitter for me. But, I do try to stay open minded and so I try, and I have discovered the magic of acquiring the taste for IPAs. I am no expert, but I know what I like and don't and this IPA hits the spot with me. Not so bitter, a distinct smell and slight taste of oranges, and what I experience is a crisp IPA that leaves me, surprisingly, wanting more.

3.43/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Brilliantly clear, golden beer pours with a thick topper of creamy, white foam. The foam melts to 2mm of cover. Clear carbonation rising from base of snifter.
Smell: Extreme green gop smell. Citrusy, piney, juicy. Absolutely excellent hoppy aroma.
Taste: Light bitterness. Clearly not much of a bittering addition. Very smooth with not much lingering taste.
Mouth-Feel: Light to medium body. Shy of fizzy carbonation, but still up front. Not much to write home about.
Overall: A technically good IPA. A little industrial and boring, with no real jazz. Good if you're mowing the lawn, but I wouldn't bring it to a friend's house. Then again, I'm not that big of a fan if IPAs.
