3.53/5 rDev -5.4%
12 oz, bottle poured into a pint glass (bottled 4 months ago)
A-Lively bubbles on the pour with about 1 1/2 fingers of foam, dissipating to less than one in the first minute. Nice, golden color with a little haze to it.
S-Malty sweetness with a little aroma of orange peel.
T-Still relatively malty as the nose indicated but better hop presence in the taste. I'm still getting primarily citrus with some spiciness showing up as it warmed. More hop bitterness on the finish.
M-Medium bodied with pleasant carbonation. It lingers slightly on the tongue.
O-The sum is better than its parts on this one. I don't think it offers a lot on the nose and isn't the most powerful or complex tasting IPA on the market. However, I enjoy this beer and would buy it again. Would probably get higher reviews from me if labeled generically as "ale." As an IPA, it's lacking in hop character.

4.09/5 rDev +9.7%
Creamy 1 finger head with staying power. Solid lacing
Subtle hop aroma
Good carb, pleasant malt forefront with a nice bitter finish. Not overwhelming hops but a little piney and a little citrusy. All around it is easy drinking and deceptively boozy for a DIPA

Taste: The first drink it tasted no diffrent from a stone IPA(this is a good thing). As for the huge hop taste I didn't see it no different then any other IPA. With a light citrus giving it a light bitterness.
Apperance: the golden color and great look makes this beer look very refreshing.
smell: is very floral of hops
Overall: As the bottle says its leaves the scene without a trace. I would recommend this to the beer drinker that wants to get into drinking IPA and develop a taste for stronger brews.
