4.3/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. 1 inch cream-colored head appeared, then settled quickly to a thin ring. Color is of hay with a 50% hazy appearance and small amount of carbonation on display.
Smell is bready with nice hop notes: hydrangea, cedar, slight malt notes.
Taste is cheery, with a hop-forward/malt backward balance that is quite enjoyable. The bitterness is not overly pronounced, but it hits you right on the front of the tongue. The hop notes are dry, slightly piney with some flowers present on the tongue. The swallow leaves a sweet caramel coating in your mouth that neutralizes the hoppiness of the beer. One can taste the alcohol in this beer on the swallow, but it's not overt.
Mouthfeel is nice and full with a creamy smoothness to it. This beer has a good balance in the mouth.
Drinkability is quite high for a beer of this nature. It is smooth, not overwhelming in its character, and goes down easy.

4.5/5 rDev +11.7%

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Two finger head, clear golden color. Nose is citrusy (orange/grapefruit/pineapple) and hoppy - smells incredible.
Taste is similar to the smell, but the hops are more pronounced. Not overly carbonated. For a triple hopped IPA it isn't as aggressive in the hop flavors as it could be - not for drinking quickly, but definitely more drinkable than some similar beers. Could probably appeal to hopheads and those less enthusiastic about aggressive beers.
Overall a very good beer, one I'd like to keep around. Glad I picked it up on my way back from Baltimore.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Golden-orange color, big off-white head, fluffy. ample amounts of all kinds of lacing. Bubbly.
S- Piney hop aroma, some citrus and malts.
T- It's malty paired with those piney hops and earthy floral flavor.
M- Big body, thick and resinous. Well carbonated. Long hope bite finish.
O- Big hop profile that is not overly bitter. Better tan I expected.
