4.13/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

gold with a slight shade of amber. clear. white moussey head. good retention.

big hop aroma. grass and pine mostly. some grapefruit and floral. no malt aroma.

sweet upfront. this gives way to grassy and piney hop flavors. and a nice bitterness. the bitterness in the end is not too huge, but it does linger. no alcohol flavor. no malt flavor, its sweetness can only be sensed in the beginning.

medium/full mouthfeel. smooth. soft.

overall this is nice. though i do wish i could taste the malts a little.

4.11/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours light amber color with a 1-2 finger width foamy head. Excellent lacing on side of glass. The odor is subtle. Can discern some citrus and pine. There is a soapy smell. Malty, citrus taste upfront. Malty taste persists with a moderate piney hoppy taste at the end. The bitterness, although mild, does persists through after drinking. Overall, a good IPA. I would like a little more hoppy smell and bitterness at the end.
