look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear, copper color. 3/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hop oils, sweet malt, slight caramel malt, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, hops, citrus hops, hop oils, hint of pale malt, and a hint of alcohol.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nice copper color with 2 fingers of white head and beautiful lacing. Smells a bit sour and malty. Fairly mild hops for an IPA, lots of pine and a hint of citrus. Slightly above average carbonation. I wouldn't call this a great beer, but I would definitely another.

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a cleat dark golden color with a smallish frothy white head that quickly settles to a cap on top. Citrus, earthy and spicy hops dominate the aroma. Bready with light caramel malts provide a hint of balance to an otherwise hoppy nose. The flavor is a bit sweeter than the aroma let on. Rich bready sugary honey maltiness provides a nice base for nice hit of spicy citrus hop flavor and a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers long into every sip. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice IPA
