look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Clear, really fizzy, bright yellow pour with a nice thick head and great lacing. The nose is typical, big West Coast IPA with tons of citrus and subtle floral notes. The taste is also dominated by citrus with oranges and peaches at the forefront. Perfect balance with enough malty sweetness to complement the grassy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel suffers a bit for me because of the high carbonation. Nice crisp, dry finish. The great balance makes this beer incredibly drinkable. A great beer from one of my favorite breweries.

Pours a light golden yellow with a thin white head. Smell is citrusy and piney with a hint of sweetness. Taste follows the nose for the most part. Tropical fruit comes through a bit more as well. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Carbonation is what you'd expect from an IPA. Overall this is a great west coast IPA. I kinda wish Alesmith sold 12oz bottles though. I'd imagine Alesmith would be much more popular if they did.
