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

12oz bottle (no date) poured into a tumbler glass.

Appearance: Hazy copper-amber color. Thin off white head. Good strands and dots of persistent lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit citrus and pine almost solely, but not a strong aroma.

Taste: Very hoppy. Pine, grapefruit dominate. Barest hint of malt balance in here but predominately bitter with a lingering bitter hop finish at the end. Good for an AIPA.

Mouthfeel: Lots of hop resin sticking to the teeth on this tone, but with enough carbonation to pull it off the teeth later.

Overall / Drinkability: Very typical west coast AIPA. A good beer, quite drinkable.

The beer is clear golden orange with good lacing from a huge fluffy light tan head which dissipates slowly.

Smells is a bit light, but has some floral, bitter and citrus aromas.

Taste is a balance of malts and hops, with a light bitter throughout, and a light citrus sweet finish.

Feels very smooth and very drinkable.

A fine good balanced beer, but it's not quite what I am looking for in an IPA. Tastes more like an APA, especially with the lower abv and smoothness.

DOA
