look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Crystal clear shimmering gold with white froth dome.
S: Had this one one week from bottle date and it kicks the nose nicely. Full of earthy, floral and very light bread/caramel notes.
T: A great delicious hop forward flavor reminiscent of fresh mown grass, slight citrus, with floral hops at the end. A bready biscuit characteristic trickles through the finish.
M: A deliciously medium bodied, pleasantly carbonated beer with a joyful dry finish.
O: It took me forever to getting around to reviewing this beer. It has always been freaking delicous and I honestly don't know whats with the craze towards Pliny (yes it a great beer) but Blind Pig IMO is a more gorgeous well rounded beer.

4.21/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Poured a darker shade of gold, almost amber. Had a very small head that was gone within minutes.
Aroma: Had a very hoppy aroma which was very pleasant. The hops gave off nice aromas of both citrus and pine.
Taste: The flavor was what you would expect from a west coast style IPA, full of citrus notes and some good hop bitterness that lingered a bit on the tongue. A nice subtle malt backbone added to flavor of this delicious IPA.
Mouthfeel: Nice full-bodied beer that had a nice amount to of hop bitterness lingering on the tongue. Had a nice dry and bitter finish.
Overall: A great example of a west coast style IPA. Loved the citrus and pine aromas as well as the citrus and malt backbone in the taste. Easy drinking IPA as it does not have an overwhelming amount of hop bitterness but enough to taste and appreciate the hops. Very good brew.
Serving type: on-tap
