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

Golden in color, clarity slightly obscured. 2/3" white head, very soft. A little bit of grapefruit in the aroma, old school hops. Not super aromatic.

Good dry body, hearty bitterness and alcohol warmth. Cold Oregon coast stuff. Lacks sweetness or syrupy aspect from crystal malt that too many 7%+ ipas fall into. A little bit of pine in the mouthfeel.

Bomber format and price kinda sucks for a beer like this.

Nice amber color, effervescent with fine lacing and scant head. Strong, complex malty and hoppy flavors without being too overpowering....Very drinkable. Delicious!

Glass: Nonic pint glass

Appearance: a clear dark yellow with a large rocky white lasting head.

Aroma: a citrusy hop aroma.

Taste: was light sweetness at first with orange citrus notes and the finish was a moderate to heavy hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel: comes into the mouth light and thin and almost seems to thicken while it sits on the tongue. carbonation was pretty average.

A good IPA, I really enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel, although I felt the aroma was lacking.
