4.03/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a. Poured into a pint glass from tap. Light golden yellow with layer upon layer of fine lace.

s. Not an overpowering nose, just hop spice here with some malt in the distance.

t.Follows the nose, much hoppier than malty. Hop character is piney with lemon tones. Biting bitter hop snap. The malt does little to balance this. Similar to a Stone ipa.

m. Pretty crisp and light to medium bodied.

d. This is a nice drinking IPA. Everything a hop head needs. Piney bitter and citric hops, little else. Cheers!

Serving type: on-tap

3.61/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Notes: Born on by 4/17/14 (consumed 7/1/14). Poured into a nonic pint

A: Pours a light golden color. It forms a 2 finger head of large bubbles. The bubbles floating up in the glass ae also really large. In my nonic pint there is a logo on the bottom and normally there is tons of nucleation - but there is none on this beer. The foam slowly recedes leaving patching lacing.

S: A nice floral scent with some pine and maybe a little sweetness.

T: Follows the nose but with a slight bitter opening.

M: Clean and crisp just the right carbonation. This is refreshing.

O: Not quite sessionable due to the higher ABV (7.3%) and the slight bitter kick. But it is very enjoyable and more than one would not be a problem. This is kind of a go to IPA for me - but it could be uprooted.
