4.25/5  rDev +2.9%

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

12oz can with a best by date of 11/07/2014 poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a hazy deep amber with 1 finger of head and fine lace

Smell: Citric zest and pine

Taste: Malty up front with earth and pine notes in the middle with a slightly resin finish; the hop bitterness remains subdued throughout

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation with some syrup feel in the finish

Overall: A nice IPA with pine notes. There is a strong malt backbone which keeps the bitterness from getting too strong.
