3.14/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured non-aggressively to get a finger and a half of head. Clear, amber color is appealing. Smells of citrus and pine, but not too overbearing. The taste has hints of citrus, although I can't nail down exactly which one. I also taste a bit of pear. Piney finish. Overall a good IPA that doesn't overwhelm the senses.

UPDATE: After going through a couple more in the 6-pack, I had to lower my rating. Compared to other IPAs in this price range, it seems to be lacking, almost watered down. I'm really bummed out because their Hopology IPA mixed pack was fantastic.
