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

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium bronze with a thick head of white foam. Grassy pine nose. Oily. Lacing everywhere. Light bready malt flavor that builds into a peppery hop. Smooth bitter throughout. Good IPA, very drinkable.

4.26/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours copper with a creamy head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of citric fruits - especially grapefruit - with herbal notes. Robust hop aroma.

The taste is of citric fruits and herbal notes, balanced by a touch of caramel. It has a bitter, dry finish. Hops linger through aftertaste.

It has a chewy, smooth body.

This is a hop delight! Just enough malt to give it a backbone, the hops truly shine here! A very well-made American IPA!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

The paler side of orange, this beer is translucent but not transparent, with some chill haze and maybe even some particulate hop matter floating around. There is a soft, billowy, white cloud of foam that recedes, lacing the glass and ringing the beer surface,

American hops, all the way, in the nose. Pine and Citrus.

Taste: If you like chinook, this is going to register as a good balanced beer. If you find chinook a bit strong, maybe even obnoxious, this beer will not change your opinion.

4.24/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance of this beer is a light golden color. It is very cloudy and has some sediment floating in it (little chunks mean big flavor!) It leaves no lacing against a frosted glass and has a very small head.

The smell is pungent and very hoppy with only a slight hint of caramel flavored malt. The hops are, and somehow are not, that classic pine and citrus, they have a different characteristic; very nice.

The taste is bitter beauty. Hints of grapefruit citrus behind the hops and then a slight, caramel flavored malt that teases the tongue just before the bitterness comes crashing down on your palette.

Mouthfeel is dictated by the bitterness. This beer leaves the mouth dry but with all of the flavor of the brew still present. Very nice.

Okay - I am a sucker for IPA's (my name should be a hint of this fact), but this beer is just different enough to set itself apart from the classic IPA taste. It is 6% ABV so it is easy to drink, bitter and tasty. Good one, try it, now...got it yet...no? Go get it!
