look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

A: Orange/yellow, some floaties. Decent head, some lace.

S: Some piney hops, malts.

T: Follows nose. Different than any AIPA I have had. Hops seem a bit muted. Some sweet, maybe a caramel finish.

M: Medium body. Somewhat sticky.

D: Again, different than any other AIPA. Easy to drink, but, almost too sweet to be a session beer.

3.29/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours an adequate finger’s worth of clean white foam, a lot of larger bubbles, retention is weak, the lacing fares better, broad streaks, not thick depth-wise but do stain the glass sides for some time. Bright coppery orange hued liquid, easily transparent, holds hue intensity through rims and glass bottom, any visible bubbles are super-tiny. The nose focuses on bitterness, unprocessed grains, grapefruit pith, pepper, green leafy matter and tarry earth and ash, not that much pine, even less by way of pineapple, peach, apricot fruit scents, has very good punching power but relatively weak richness of scents hampers length. Medium-bodied, the carbonation is strong and creates a “waves crashing on the beach” effect, never quite allows you to relax. Mild uptick in flowers, pine and malt, arguably the same for the peach, apricot, yellow apple fruit flavors. Salt and pepper, pretzel dough, sour breads, fairly bitter but not as much as the nose might suggest. Light cocoa and caramel soften the finish a little. Not watery, no overt flaws, just simple and kind of caught in the middle without a clear idea of what it wants to be.

3.63/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is clear amber yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus and pine resin hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste seems to have more piney flavors and these are present from the start and linger through the finish; hints of citrusy hops and caramel malts are present in the middle. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink. While nothing in the smell and taste really seemed to stand out, it did have an interesting mix of citrusy and pine resin hops, which could make for a refreshing change of pace if you are getting drowned out by citrusy hops.
