3.44/5  rDev -5.5%
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 -5.8%
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.
