look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

poured from a bottle into a pint glass. I noticed that it poured a light copper color and had a head that disappears quickly.
Odor is light. not very floral and cannot really detect the hops upfront.
Mouthfeel is light and carbonated. Clean finish for a IPA of any kind. Taste is of hops, big and upfront. It seems to smooth toward the end.
Overall a pretty good beer. I liked many other LH beers more, but this does not hurt the name.

Had this beer a few times now and each time I just don't care for it. The look of the beer is nice. The color is a nice clear copper color with a thick foamy white head on top. The smell isn't really that pleasing to me, It's hoppy but it kinda smells weird to me. The taste is even worse, I don't know what they use in this brew but I really don't care for it. The mouthfeel was pretty good, and it's drinkable for sure. Overall if the taste was better this brew would be awesome but I'm just not sure of it.

Poured into a pint glass this brew was a nice yellow golden wheat color with a simple 1 finger white head. The aroma was strong of citrus. Not much more to it. The taste was nice and fresh, but not overly hoppy (which I like). There was nice lemon and orange flavors along with a faint spruce note. The brew was a little high in carbonation for being such a light body brew. This was average for the style.
