3.9/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured into a pint glass out of a 750ml bottle.
Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a fluffy one finger white head. Honorable head retention and some pretty nice globs of lacing hanging onto the sides of the glass.
I love the hops in the aroma. Tons of grapefruit along with a quite prominent herbal/dank note. While there really isn't any malt present, Yazoo really nails the hop combination making this aroma mouth-watering.
The flavor closely follows the aroma with grapefruit dominating but the herbal notes are a little more muted. Similar to the aroma there is a distinct lack of malt character which is a bit disappointing. There is a touch of light bread that becomes noticable as the beer warms but it still isn't much. Mouthfeel is a bit weak although there is a light silkiness added by the wheat and oats. Fairly dry finish with a moderate bitterness.
Overall, this is a really good beer from Yazoo. While it could use some more malty notes and a bit more body, it is very drinkable and very enjoyable.

3.61/5 rDev -4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Pours a clear, gold/copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight citrus hops, hint of floral hops, yeast, slight sweet malt, and slight alcohol. A mellow aroma, but good. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a strong bitterness and slight dryness. Tastes of slight citrus hops, hint of pine, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, and slight alcohol. Overall, very fresh tasting, but also very bitter and dry.

A - Pours a bright straw color with lots of bubbles and 1 1/2 finger fluffy white head. Very good retention and ok lacing
S - Pleasant aroma. Powerful grapefuit and grass smells. Slight pine sap araoma as well. All hops. Not much malts present
T - Very similar to the aroma. Grapefruit and grass rule upfront. Slight lemon on the finish. Again, not much malts detected
M - A lighter IPA. Pretty slick feeling ni the mouth. Not overly smooth with a slight burn
O - A very drinkable IPA. Its nothing over the top. Enjoyable flavor especially if you like lots of hops. Would like to see a little more balace with the malts
