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.

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

Appearance: Pours with a nice head, and some sticky lacing. The color of the beer itself is a deep amber color.

Smell: A lot of spiciness with the hops... really doesn't taste all too much like it smells.

Taste: Floral, spicy, grapefruity. That's the best way I can describe it. The slight bitterness at the end is really great. The malt also comes through on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Perfect. Right middle-of-the-road, and it makes this an easy and pleasurable drinking IPA.

The more I drank it, the more I enjoyed it. I got this in a mix-a-six, but I'd not hesitate to buy some more of this stuff. The hype is well-founded ... this is one of the most popular IPAs in America, and for good reason. It's tasty, it's affordable, and you can find it just about anywhere. A quality beer. It's pretty unreal just how perfectly the flavors mesh.
