look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

One of my favorite styles, one of my favorite breweries. The makings of a winner, and it does not disappoint. This is a candidate for best all around.

So often strong IPAs are too malty, too hoppy, etc. This one is perfect. Strong, but perfectly balanced. I think will need to go back and get lots more.

The malt is light colored and thus the nice, understated malt taste (despite the three varieties, per the label). The hops are strong and green from nose, all the way down. Alcohol is not anywhere to be tasted. This is just plain good.

3.7/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pour a extremely light golden hue with solid effervescence and bubbling carbonation. The light color was worrisome that it would lack flavor. Strong aroma of pine and bitter floral hops. Taste was better than the appearance indicated, smooth with good carbonation. Tastes of caramel and malt with balanced hops. This was a good beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Great gold and copper color. Good foam when poured. The smell of the hops and the malts are very distinct. Great. The taste is very hoppy at first with that long lasting aftertaste. Very bubbling which quickly dissipates, leaving that good bitter taste on the tongue. Overall is a great IPA. Will be buying this again.
