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

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a tulip. Beautiful dark amber with two inch off white head. Good retention and great lacing.

Smell is great. Pine, grapefruit, all hops. Maybe a little malt sweetness.

Taste is outstanding. A nice hoppy blast that lingers. A little malt sweetness in the middle and lingering hoppiness. This is what an American ipa should taste like. Really good balance.

Mouthfeel is nearly perfect. Just the right amount of carbonation and really smooth. Nice.

Overall a great American ipa. A hophead delight. If you like the hops - a must try and for me, a go to ipa.
