look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I had this on-tap at Capone's on Black Friday. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear light amber color with a finger of fluffy white head. The head leaves a ring around the edge of the glass and a good amount of lacing.

Smell: Milder than I expected. Citrus peel hops with a very mild sweetness.

Taste: Much stronger than the smell. Bitter with a good amount of malt to balance things out. The bitterness increases throughout the sip. Citrus peel hops with a bitter and peppery finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit dry.

Overall: This is just an awesome single IPA The hop profile is wonderful, but there is just enough malt to balance it out. Definitely have it again.

Serving type: on-tap
