look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Golden brown. Analogous to Racer 5. Solid lacing. Yummy.

S: Great light fruity hoppy aroma. Smell is better than the taste.

T: A nice, IPA from a few years ago. Not an aggressive piney, grapefruit IPA. Just an IPA and nothing else. I appreciate there is no sugary aftertaste. I'd love to get to know this brew on a Wed or TH night.

M: I found this bomber FLAT. Some astringent flavors at the back end.

O: I'd definitely try this again as a draft. Not as a bomber.

A-Pours a hazy copper color. Head is nice. It leaves lacing and is relatively frothy but has some body to it.

S-Getting that standard citrus/dough combo. Citrus and green bitter grass and pine. Malt provides balance. Definitely hop-forward but the hop flavors do allow the malt to shine through at some moments.

T-Still finding balance. Bakery malt and citrus hops with more pine and grass than the nose led me to initially believe. Herbal hops too.

M-Fuller bodied in terms of the style. Booze hidden well. Bitter and dry. A mild resinous quality. Chewy to some extent.

O/D-Again, another reason for me to believe that the East Coast has some serious hoppy brews that can easily compete with many of these West Coasters. Good price though. I have had this exact beer before I swear; maybe a different label from a different brewery but this take on the IPA is everywhere.
