Good appearance. Dark amber with ruby hints. Nice head and lacing.

Very appealing mild citrus and stronger pine aroma. Totally correct for the style. Not a super strong aroma but quite good.

Taste is typical American IPA and similar to SN Torpedo to my taste buds. Good balance of sweet and bitter. Not huge citrus tatses but a bit of orange is there. Nice piney flavour, resinous feel and solid malt core make this a good drinking IPA. IBUs are noticeable and welcome!

Overall, a very solid offering and rendition of this renown style of beer. Perhaps nothing outstanding or remarkable for those who've tried a few of this style but definitely enjoyable. This would have a wow factor for anyone not used to big, hoppy US beers.

93/100

Look: Deep golden honey with a super aggressive white head

Smell: super dank smell. Getting pine, honey, grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime, and sweet malt on the finish.

Taste: Huge hop punch at the beginning. Getting pine, lime, lemon, tangerine, pineapple, more pine, kiwi, honey, and sweet malt with pine on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with mild carbonation. It's really smooth but sticky and resiny. Hop bitter bite rounds it out with a dry finish that lingers on the tongue. Alcohol is just barely there.

Overall: Solid IPA. Nothing revolutionary but a solid pick up if your in the mood.
