look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer has a white two-inch foamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a very white with lacing. The beer is an orange and golden amber that is clear and filtered. Even though the head quickly dissipates, the beer still has some creamy covering. The beer smell has citrus and orange hoppy notes. However, the smell has a bit of lightly roasted malt as its backbone and a hint of pepper as well. The beer taste is very different from the beer smell. The lightly roasted malt backbone is more prominent with a grapefruit hop taste as well as hints of pepper and other mineral taste. The beer has a medium body with clean smooth feel as well as a clean aftertaste feeling. The beer has biting carbonation. A pretty good and unique IPA that I would like to have again.
