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

Pours dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of citrus - I smell orange peel - but, it's mild and not sure if it more from the power of suggestion. Caramelized grain is in the back.

The taste is of orange and grapefruit. Toasted caramel malty backbone gives a supporting sweet balance to the upfront bitterness. Pine/resin comes through in the finish. The alcohol is slightly noticeable.

It is medium-bodied, smooth with a mild (tangy?) bite.

Not sure that orange peel adds much to this, but that's fine. Overall - a solid American IPA!

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

A-Clear ruby orange, not much carbonation or head.

S-Malt, some citrus, tad bit of orange.

T-Starts with more malt than needed and a nice pine note. Ends with mild citrus and a slight bitterness. Hops are harsh.

M-Medium bodied, not much carbonation, some hope resins.

O-Was hoping for more out of this beer, the hops were not dialed in and the added orange wasn't were it needed it be.
