Review Date: 9/8/14
Bottled 8/1/2014

Appearance - 3.75/5
Pours a light orange-brown, maybe some hints of red. Quite clear. Minimal head. Can see a normal amount of medium-sized carbonation bubbles flowing to the top at an slower than average rate. Overall, a nice look, but nothing special.

Smell - 3/5
Sweet maltiness and some piney-flora-earthy hops aroma. Smell is ok, not that great.

Taste - 3.25/5
Earthy-malty sweetness. Pine and floral hops. Perhaps a tiny hint of citrus. An okay taste.

Mouthfeel - 3.25/5
Light to medium in body. A little bit of bitterness. There is a light amount of moderate-intensity carbonation. The beer drinks quite smooth. A little bit more on the creamy side than crisp.

Overall - 3.5/5
This is an okay IPA, but there are a lot of better ones out there. Won't get this again.
