I got one of these for $6.50 from Halftime beverage. Poured into a pint glass.
A - A fairly clear orange yellow with a solid 1/4 inch of head that sticks around with some great lacing. Some floaties throughout so it's either a tad old or bottle conditioned.
S - Some piney hops, touch of English tea like malts, a bit of gram cracker, and more piney hops.
T - Has a solid hop presence kind of like Dogfish head's 60 minute. The hops do cling to the palate and has a sweet enough crystal malt and gram cracker like malt presence to keep it from being too bitter. A very approachable IPA.
M - Great balanced bitterness meets a light to medium body. Goes down smooth.
Overall I could see why this got such great reviews. Heck I almost drank a full glass by the end of this review. Not the cheapest IPA but a very tasty one worth trying at least once. Psyched to try the nut brown and X pale ale I got also.

4.11/5 rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Clear amber with occasional carbonation under a three inch, off-white foam that slowly turns creamy as it settles to one inch, leaving a uniform film of webbing on a Cisco Fisheye pint glass.
Big pine aroma with orange mixed in. This is not subtle at all and warms to add a creamsicle aroma.
The flavor is quite subdued, given the aroma. Bitter with prominent grapefruit and mild light tea. There is almost no finish for about 20 seconds, then a mild bitterness comes out.
Soft carbonation and a light-to-medium body combine to leave a slight texture and a slight metallic sensation.
This is a very approachable IPA which delivers the full experience without being extreme. One coule easily enjoy a full bomber with pulled pork on a bitterly cold winter’s day.
