3.28/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured a golden amber with little to no foam with little lacing. Seemed flat from the beginning.

Smell is faint hops and a hint of citrus and pine with earth over tones. Overall weak!

Taste is hops, lemon and citrus with a lemony finish. A smooth not bitter lemony after taste.

Mouth feel is smooth with some carbonation. But a little disappointing!

Overall a good IPA but not as good as SN.

Serving type: on-tap
