4.04/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
This is a beautiful, almost perfect looking IPA. Pours a deep gold-orange with a finger a half of tight, sudsy white head. Good lace retention too.
In terms of smell, you get a big whiff of pine as soon as you crack the can. This dominates for the duration, with just a faint whiff of sweet orange in the background.
Taste is a little one-note at first, with big cool hop, piney bitterness dominating. Like the smell, there are hints of orange and caramel as the beer warms and mellows.
Mouthfeel is really great -- seemingly creamy and dry at the same time, with a long lemony finish.
A big piney IPA that doesn't deviate too far from the formula, but it's solid and well-done.
Serving type: can

4.11/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours a vibrant orange golden (lightly hazy) with 1 1/2 finger of khaki-colored bubbly head. Tons of sticky lacing is left when the head recedes.
S: Big aromas of grapefruit, stone fruit, guava, and a little bit of pine dominate. Some sweet malt character. Some slight hint of alcohol.
T/M: Smooth lightly wheaty malt sweetness gives way to big citrus hop character and juiciness. Accompanying this is a mild hop bitterness that swells through the finish and lingers alongside malt character. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate, fine, foaming carbonation that doesn't strongly affect the flavor of the beer.
O: Really a nice IPA -- big and juicy flavor without an overwhelming bitterness. Mouthfeel is really nice and complements the beer well.
