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

A: Poured a pale golden - orange color. Got a perfect amount of head resting on top, that had no intention of going away. Fair amount of lacing as you empty your glass.

S: Smells extremely hoppy, with a followup of citrus.

T: ||Not even close to as bitter as I expected from a double IPA, very very smooth and easy to drink. Honestly if there is one thing this brew could benefit from it would be a hint more bitterness. Its pretty fruit forward (to borrow a term from my wino friends) and you can really taste the malt.

M: Very light on the mouth. Doesn't make you feel like you're trying to chug syrup. Easily the creamiest/lightest IPA I've had to date.

O: If I had easy access to this brew and the funds to do so, it would be my one and only. I was so excited when I finally got my bottle, and I was in no way disappointed, I can not wait to get more.
