look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a. honey orange in color with three finger head. Head calmed down to one finger that lasted. beautiful color that is cloudy, but you can see through. Lacing on glass is consistent.

s. The aroma of this beer is the big seller to me. It is pitch perfect. Hoppy, pine, grapefruit, slight malt. Wow - impressive on the nose.

t. Malt steals the show for me. There is some pine and there is some hops, but the amount of malt seems to be out of balance for an IPA.

m. Very good. Light carbonation but solid.

o. My scores average out to a 4 - not sure but I will go there. If you are an IPA purist - heavy on the hops taste - you may not like this as much as others. It is an outstanding beer overall.
