look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Growler purchased fresh in NY and opened same day 9/12
Pours golden with a bit of off white head but very limited with a bit of lingering legs
Smell strong on the floral, sweet/grapefruit pineapple
Taste had a citrus upfront orange and grapefruit with some earthy tones/floral and a nice crisp and slightly tart finish
Mouthfeel medium body with a crisp finish. Not too creamy

Overall a very tasty ipa with a nice flavor profile, easy drinker, hides the ABV and could easily drink a few of these. On the list of buys when I see it

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

12 oz bottle poured into Spiegelau glass.

A: 3.5 Light good with 2 fingers of white head that leaves a little lacing.
S: 3.5 Floral, but not a big burst like I was expecting or hoping given the name.
T: 3.75 Floral/citrus with a good bitter and dryness to it.
M: 4.0 Carbed well, smooth, dry aftertaste.
O: 3.5 Not a bad IPA, but nothing I'd seek out. I'd like there to be more of an impact in the aroma and taste. I liked what was there, there just wasn't enough of it.
