look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer glass.
Appearance: Pours a pure golden color with moderately-heavy carbonation. Head is a thin, yet frothy light-beige monster which leaves moderately-heavy lacing as it recedes.
Smell: Heavy floral hop arrangement here, supplemented by some pretty extensive citrus tones (grapefruit especially). Underneath it all is a kind of sweet bread malt layer which perfectly compliments the hops.
Taste: Grapefruit first, followed by the floral hops. Beautiful bitterness creeps in very slowly and remains in the aftertaste. No skunkiness or overt bitterness, I really like the approach here.
Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue, medium carbonation. Rinses mostly clean, but leaves just a touch of coating in the back of the mouth.
Drinkability: I could easily make this a mid-beer for a Friday night drinking session on a regular basis. It's super flavorful, while remaining true to the style. Very nice.
A great beer here...and DEFINITELY worth a try if you are into IPAs, in my opinion, this beer is one of the best examples of the style I've had the privilege to try.

Light copper and extremely clean this IPA set up a dense and foamy ivory head.
The scent held an airy lemon, grapefruit and bright fresh hay. The malt is tempered but the hops are very fresh and spring like.
The flavor holds a sweet lemon and a sour grapefruit but the malt is strong in a grainy, musty taste.
The feel is a bit bitter but this is super easy to drink.
Perhaps the musty grain malt flavor was an aberration and not all bottles hold this same property but it detracted from the overall taste.
