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

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A - Clear, yellow orange body topped with a quarter inch of dense white head.

S - Pine, orange, and grapefruit hop aromas.

T - Clean malt backing with loads of hop flavor and bitterness. Pine, grapefruit, orange zest, as well as a bit of mint and vegetal undertones. Pretty simple and to the point. Hop bitterness builds into the long aftertaste.

M - Light-medium body, perfect carbonation. Right on for style.

D - Good California IPA. Very dry and easy to drink. Certainly a beer that merits a regular spot in the rotation.
