4.4/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured for my bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Hazy orange color with a one finger off white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Hop extract or resin; Heavy pine and citrus notes

Taste: Bright grapefruit and citrus flavors with floral undertones accompanied by pale malts that keep everything in check. Resiny

Mouthfeel: Light and smooth with moderate bitterness

Overall: This is a great IPA. Very full flavored for the style and smooth and not too bitter which I like. This reminds me of a Lagunitas beer. I will certainly be enjoying more of this this summer. Highly recommended

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with a frothy cream head that leaves sticky lacing as it slowly dissipates.

Pine, resin, floral hops, tangerine, pineapple,and mango accompany slightly sweet caramel malt to form the aroma.

Flavor reveals a toasted, slightly sweet caramel malt backbone, with underpinnings of tart lime, tangerine, mango, and grapefruit pith adding complexity. The finish is earthy, bready, and moderately bitter. Floral notes emerge late.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with light alcohol warmth and a slightly astringent, lingering finish.

Good hop complexity, with just a little more bitterness than I'd prefer, though I do like the fact that malt has a noted presence.

Best IPA I have tasted yet. I will be honest I am not into appearance or smell. I am into the taste of IPAs and beer in general. The taste is amazing in this IPA. I also visited the brewery and had it on draft. Draft was delicious as well but the bottle was just as good. Almost tastes likes double IPA. I would recommend this to any IPA lover...Expensive but worth it.
