4.43/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Very clear copper, with an orange hue. Nice big thick frothy head that sticks around for most of the glass, lacing last throughout.

S- Very Very sweet, with a lot of pine. Bready character also makes it's way through. All comes together to make a very floral aroma, very nice.

T- Mild bitterness at start, beginning from the tip of the tongue down the sides, with the carbonation tipping off the top. The malts and hops balance each other really good, the malt meets in the middle then lets the hops finish the beer slightly dry. After taste is like a nice baked bread. Piney hops and bready malts.

M- Slightly water downed, but easy to drink with mild carbonation, not the best mouth feel you want on a beer but pretty decent, and that makes it an excellent summer beer.

O- A very solid IPA, easily on my top ten ipa's and making its way to the top 5. It is very balanced for an ipa still hoppy of course and pairs with food very well, bbq, sandwiches, etc. My go to beer that I can take to the river or lake. Superb.
