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

Poured into a pint glass. The color is a darker orange color, almost copper or amber. Pour produces a frothy off-white head that leaves some sticky lacing.

The nose is pretty damn bitter, surprise surprise. I don't get as much floral or citrus hops that I have come to know and love, most of an dry, piney and resiny hop bitterness. Significant malt backbone sits waiting in the background.

The taste isn't as balanced between bitter hops and sweet malts as the nose lets you think it is. A huge blast of resiny bitterness, without any defining hop characters to back it up. A dry astringency from front to back, which disappoints me because it seems as though other reviewers are getting citrus and floral hop characters that my bottle seems to be lacking.

Light to medium body, with an appropriate carbonation, and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Drinkability is pretty good.

Overall, not a bad IPA, I would just liked to see more hop characters rather than just plain bitterness. I have come to know and love the citrus side of hops and I didn't get it in this IPA.

I found this beer to have a nice balance of malt and hoppy bitterness. Beautiful golden color as well. But the flavor profile with the hops is pretty one-sided, like Cascade, sticking straight out of the maltiness underneath. So it just stings and goes away.
