look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Web-like lacing trickles down the glass.

S- Sweet malt aroma smells like fresh wort which pleases me. The hops are light and decidedly earthy.

T- Bitterness comes through immediately along with more earthy hops and the aforementioned sweet malt translated to flavor. The bitterness holds on just long enough to remain fully enjoyable. Easy to drink as the alcohol is very well hidden.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I think this is a great IPA. I feel like the reason it has such a low score is because a lot of people taste the residual sweetness from the unfermented sugars and automatically deduct points because it's perceived as a flaw. I personally enjoy that residual sweetness and think that the one-two punch from that and the hops makes for a delicious drink. To each their own.

Poured a yellow, golden, semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of creamy white rocky head. Good uneven layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.13)

Smelled citrus hops, floral hops, wet Cascade hops, soap, pine, caramel, slight resin hops, some tropical hops, orange rind and mango. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted similar to the nose. Caramel, tropical hops, mango, wet Cascade hops, resin hops, citrus hops, floral hops, soapy notes, bitter melon rind, orange zest, pine and lemon. Reminded me of a Manzanita IPA. (Taste - 4.13)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Really liked this IPA, but the first one of the five I had was the best. Maybe overrated it a tad. (Overall - 4.00)
