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

Not the freshest bottle and was brewed on the 258th day of this year = September 15th

A - Poured out a off white yellowish creamy 4 finger head with crystal clear golden bronze color. Lacing is really nice on this one.

S - On the nose you get a balanced nose of Hops and Malts. The hops have a pine, grass, skunk, dankness, followed by a nice caramel sweet bready malt back that really can push ahead of the hops hear.

T - This one is bitter with a nice hop bite up front of pine, light citrus, and some grassy earthyness, definitely can taste the bitterness more hear then on the nose with a caramel bready bitter finish that goes on and on. No alcohol detected.

M - This one drinks nice and smooth with a medium light mouth and a good amount of carbonation that takes over in the back and tickles the tongue. Goes down easy and is relatively dry and crisp.

O - This is a classic IPA by SN, that definitely lives up to a great brew. I could go to this as a regular not only for the price but the quality on this one. This one I will revisit on a regular basis. If you have not tried this one give it a go you will not be disappointed. Cheers!
