look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: Very cool label with some interesting and unique artwork. Has a comedic twist to the artwork.
Appearance: Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a 20oz dimpled mug. Pours a clear golden-yellow/orange with a 1½ finger off white slightly thick foam head. Head retention was 2min before finally fading to a frothy foam coating.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of sweet grapefruit and citrus with a great floral hop presence. A bit of pine can be detected as well.
Flavor/Taste: Huge citrus presence on the front end. Grapefruit and mango are detectable. Only slightly bitter considering a very hoppy presence throughout. Some sweet toasty malt come through on the back end to finish out. Excellent.
MouthFeel: Medium-bodied feel but definitely bordered on the lighter side of medium bodied. Average carbonation.
Drinkability: Very smooth and drinkable.
Overall/Comments: An excellent example of the American IPA. I always compare my IPAs to Stone IPA and this is not quite as good but can surely hold its own with most IPAs out there. Highly recommend trying this. Classified as an American IPA at 7.25% ABV.
Serving type: bottle

Had it and it was a bit over chilled. First sip is in your face Citra hops with an astringent aftertaste as one would expect with this much hops. Mouthfeel grew as I downed the hopped up elixir. Seemed a bit out of balance malt vs hops. A little more malt would balance this brew. Would order again.
Serving type: on-tap
