3.35/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Prominent, frothy head, strong golden color with an orange tint, and lots of carbonation. Plenty of lacing.

Smell: Citrusy and slightly fruity aroma.

Taste: Pronounced hoppy flavor not overly bitter at all, lingering nicely on palate with pleasant citrus highlights. Underlying sweet flavors that really come out with the right food pairing (in my case, a spicy curry).

Mouthfeel: A bit light.

Drinkability: Very light and drinkable, though not my favorite American IPA.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

For a wide-spread distributed IPA...Harpoon has to be my favorite..

Serving: tap and & bottle.
Appearance: Copper.
Smell: Nice subtle hoppy smell.
Taste: more on the hoppy side, with a wee-bit of floral notes.
mouthfeel: on the heavier side.
Ovearall: Formidable IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
