look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cloudy gold with a huge head of foam and excellent lacing. Tons of carbonation. Way too much carbonation.

Smell: Grapefruit, caramel, pineapple, lemon.

Taste: Citrus, caramel, and grassy malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Pretty good. It offers a huge aroma but the flavors are well balanced and muted. My only real complaint is the over carbonation- no matter how perfect the pour, half the glass was foam with each bottle.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle; into a tumbler.
Appearance - gold, cloudy; thin, foamy head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell - pineapple and mango, faint juicy fruit.
Taste - not bad, but falls short of the nose, lacking with a strong pineapple and mango presence. A bit too boozy after it sits.
Feel - this goes from an enjoyable, drinkable IPA, to a weird after taste, funky IPA.
Overall - I'm in and out on this one...which means I'm out. Too funky when it's all said and done.
