look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A strong coppery gold in the glass, good head retention with streams of carbonation up the glass, very clear. 3.75
S – crisp grapefruit upfront, floral notes in abundance, caramel biscuit malt, light and fruity, very summer-y. 3.25
T – a nice punch of cascade hops, lots of ruby grapefruit and pithy bitterness, dry florals and a dry body that lingers with robust citrus notes drying out on the finish. Some grassiness, the hops are good and the bitterness balanced by the maltiness, but I feel they fall a bit flat, fairly one dimensional in terms of the cascade/grapefruit profile. 3.5
M – moderate body, high carbonation, quite a sessionable fruity IPA. Good bitter pithy feel to it, with enough of a biscuit malt base to work. 3.5
A tasty, easy to enjoy American IPA, not too many bells and whistles, clean and dry which I like, but the hop profile doesn’t overly impress. Would be good for summer, malts are there but surpressed a bit and hops dont really shine. Clean but not very exciting.
