3.85/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Deep copper with about an inch of creamy looking off white head. Mostly clear with a fair amount of carbonation bubbles present. Leaves sheets of lacing with every drink.

S: Very floral and pine-y in the nose with an underlying spiciness.

T&M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a ton of hop character. Hop flavors run the spectrum from grassy to pine-y to citrus-y. While there is a decent malt backbone, this one is decidedly unbalanced. Nice bitter hop finish.

D: While I really like this brew, I can see where it wouldn't be for everyone. The brewery claims this has a whopping 80 IBU's, and I can believe it. For a hophead like me that is just fine, but if you are into more balance you might want to look elsewhere. I jokingly called this beer the "hop juice".

3.44/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pumpkin orange, pretty hazy, 1'' head
S: Very herbaceous, notes of citrus, burnt pizza crust
T: Aloe, floral, grainy wheat bread
M: Solid, pleasant, coats your tongue in a good way
O: Wasn't blown away at first but halfway through I'm really appreciating its balanced flavor. I'm definitely tasting the hops but it's fresh and drinkable rather than overly bitter.

3.43/5  rDev -6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into schooner glass.

Appearance: a 1" bubbly off white head dies awake quickly with some moderate lacing. Color is a quite hazy orange-copper with a bit of sediment in suspension.

Aroma: sweet orange, grapefruit, and nice malty backbone.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, frothy, and quite sticky with a fairly dry finish.

Flavor: Sweet orange, grapefruit dominate with some caramel and whole wheat bread flavor. There is a strong lingering grapefruit/citrus rind bitterness in the finish.

Overall: very good ipa.
