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

Appearance: Pours with a dense creamy white head of about a finger which was present while drinking. The color is light orange. Active carbonation is fairly active, what you should expect.

Smell: Interesting combination of biscuit and floral hops on the front. More dough and bread are picked up on the body with a piney bitterness lingering underneath. There is a crisp malt aroma with some grassiness that is present throughout, similar to what you'd expect from a lager.

Taste: The front is floral hops with some medium bodied fruits. Buttery, creamy dough, and biscuit pick up on the body. Some lingering pine and grassiness dance on the palate throughout and into the finish.

Mouthfeel: There is a pleasant creaminess with a crisp dryness brought by the IPA. Interesting transitions. Carbonation is bright but plays well off the crisp notes.

Overall: My second brew from these guys and I'll certainly try more. I've been impressed how well the seemingly opposing beer come together in harmony. No doubt worth a shot if you are looking for something different.
