3.71/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to Drew, noslenword for this guy. No date on the bottle, interestingly it tells you the malts, OG, IBUs, etc, but not the hop bill, oh wait that's in the description, Galaxy, Amarillo, Mosaic, Apollo, this could be good.

Pours a smaller fizzy barely head covering, semi hazy golden yellow color.

Nose pretty big hops, citrus out front, as well as stone fruit, but it's more of a candied orange peel and apricot marmalade, little zest, candied tangerine, sweet malts, faint pineapple and tropical notes as it warms.

Taste brings sweeter malt flavors out front, a little toasty malt and sweet but not syrupy, then hops, a little spicy and raw hop bitterness, a mild citrus and pine, sap, zest, a bit of a tropical note but not much, maybe papaya guava thing, touch of pineapple, but like the nose the sweet malts give the perception of candied versions of teh fruits, a bit of a syrupy sweet finish

Mouth is med to bigger bod, a bit light on the carb.

Overall I felt like this could have been a lot better, maybe the overall big malt profile with sweetness, or lack of carbonation, or something seemed to detract from the hops, for which most of them didn't seem to get the invite. The beer seemed destined more for a big DIPA style sweet and very bitter than it should have with that all-star hop lineup.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours an average IPA light amber, aroma is piney, hoppy, citrus, very strong, taste is of a pine-resin-hoppy flavor, then a citrus, sweet background. I like this and it is local. Great job.

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

Mostly clear gold-orange with a thin white blanket.

Smell is a little catty and pretty dank with apricot and a hint of apple cider vinegar.

This one is really dry but crisp with flavors of lemon and grapefruit, but more bitter than fruity--not quite piney, but more like a romaine lettuce heart.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a pale gold hue with minor carbonation and head, which fades quickly. Aroma is a familiar but inviting hop bouquet - floral Amarillo, grapefruit & orange, some Galaxy resin. Taste follows suit - it is more of a double IPA & features lots of hop resin, red grapefruit and pine. Everything is well-done & nothing is off. The only critique is that it lacks a distinct identity, but there are tons of bad IPAs out there these days so you can't be too hard on a good one just because it is somewhat anonymous.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into an East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a nice straw to golden yellow color with about an inch of head present. Lacing is present with good retention!

Smell: Dank, citrusy, pine, hoppy, and some grapefruit!

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me! Some bitterness comes in at the end which is nice! Slight malt backbone as well! Really good tasting IPA!

Feel: Medium bodied!

Overall: Mighty fine American IPA from the crew at Voodoo! This is the first non-hazy IPA I have had from these guys and it did not disappoint! I will be revisiting this one frequently with them being right here in the Burgh!

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Medium haze with little head. Tropical fruits fill the nose. The rare is similar with some pine in the back end. The Medium carbonation with a light body makes this beer Crisp and very drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

L: straw and golden, only slightly hazy. Not the same level of "hazy" as you would think for an unfiltered ale.
S: on point- sweet tropical fruit with some resin In the back.
T: sticky and light.good body for the style.
T: on the dry and bitter side. Doesn't follow the noise as much as you would like. Sweet and high resin in the medium and back end.
O: the noise is one point but I wish the taste was more in line. A soild IPA that beats most but a tad short on the finer elements around the taste.
