look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: A translucent orange with a small head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a fair amount of lacing that remains throughout.

S: Nose is very citrusy. Didn't notice any other strong smells of note.

T: Like a stronger version of the nose. Strong citrus-hop flavor with a lingering citrus aftertaste.

M: Thick and full. Average amount of carbonation. Leaves a great tingling sensation on the tongue.

O: Overall, I found this to be a great beer, I really enjoyed it. I'd recommend it as an excellent introduction to the IPA style as it has what it takes to exemplify satisfactorily what an IPA is, but it is not so hoppy/bitter as to be unpleasant to the inexperienced IPA drinker.
