look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Initial smell was very aeromatic with many citrusy flavors behind it.

Upon first taste you get the impression you are drinking a regular ipa there is very little bite and enormous flavor, there is a great balance between the citrusy flavor and the hoppy bitterness. The mixture of the two leave you with an extremely smooth and very palatable beer. I would purchase this beer again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely Phenominal!
