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

Appearance: Murky orange/amber with lots of carbonation. Half a finger's worth of creamy off-white head. Good lacing. Some sediment

Aroma: Citrus firstly. Oranges and some lemon with a little grapefruit thrown in for good measure. Some piney hops are faint but definitely present. Ends a little malty. Caramel and bready notes. Top notch

Taste: Follows the nose to a tee. Starts off with sweet tropical citrus. Some resiny pine spiciness makes itself known on the midpalate. Ends a bit bready with a lingering pine aftertaste. Not overly complex but has enough going on to remain interesting

Mouthfeel: Carbonated. Crisp. Pretty full-bodied

Overall: This is a really nicely balanced IPA. Again, not extremely complex but it does its job and it does it well

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a hazy, copper colored body. The head settles rapidly but leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Spicy pine hops with a touch of caramel.

T - Pine and orange up front with lots of caramel and toffee in the middle. Finishes with more caramel and musty pine hops.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, the hop character is a bit dull but not offensive. It seems like it might be better when really fresh.
