look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

From the right side of the label: "BOTTLED ON: MAR 10 2017"

Appearance: The body is a hazy golden color with a short creamy textured white head. It has good retention and lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is very muted but there is a touch of citrus and a light grain scent.

Taste: I get a pretty strong candy sweetness up front that turns into a strong sweet malt flavor. It is a very addictive flavor to anyone with a sweet tooth. It has a nice mild bitterness that starts toward the middle of the sip and tapers off at the end. There is a nice hop flavor to the beer which seems to be mostly herbal with a touch of orange citrus flavor. and only a light touch of pine mixed with grapefruit in the aftertaste. The flavors combined are really, really good.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is awesome. It is very drinkable and overall it just feels bright on the palate. Great carbonation and bitterness. The body rests in that middle ground between light and medium. The finish is dead center between wet and dry.

Overall: It was a highly enjoyable beer that you never get tired of drinking. It delivers a great sweet malty flavor and a nice herbal hop character with a touch of citrus. At different points while drinking the beer it gives very different experiences and that really does make the beer interesting to drink. It makes you want to go back and sip it again to chase the flavors you picked up on the last sip but then you are met with something else, then something else again. I kept waiting for my palate to adjust but it was constantly surprised by great flavors. The only downside to the beer was the lack of aroma. While it did have some aroma it just wasn't on par with some of the more average beers on the market, which was surprising given the fantastic flavor it had. Overall I would love to drink it again and I would recommend it to people who like any variation of IPAs.

Very copper in color. Nose let's you know this is a hoppy beer for sure. The taste is very resinous and almost harsh at first. The follow through lightens up the harshness. Good beer

Lots of head, orange color -quite transparent and quite a bit of lacing. Looks like an IPA, but with more head than normal. hoppy aroma with a lot of orange and general fruitiness. malty and hoppy like an IPA should be and pretty balanced I'd say. I have heard great things about this IPA and it doesn't disappoint. medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel (especially for the style). finish is pretty bitter and a bit on the slow side. a good beer. not as transcendent as Bell's Two Hearted Ale, but in the same league. Definitely in my top 5 IPA list.

Ridiculously long head with tons of lacing. Aromas of slight bitter pine tree, sweet lemon, malt, raspberry, complex. Palate of bitter, tart lemon pine needles, red apple, sweet raspberry, complex. Light bitter especially in finish but balanced overall. 94/100.
