look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle, no date

pours a clear copper color, with big off-white head, big clumps of lacing, and very good head retention. just a mild hop aroma, but pleasant. a bit earthy. same with the taste, slightly sweet and malty. not bitter. good mouthfeel. smooth carbonation, a bit oily.

A good beer, just not sure the hop levels reach a "hop explosion".

This brew pours an opaque golden color with a small one finger head and moderate lacing.

The smell is strong with pine and citrus hops, the pine dominates.

The taste is mostly pine hops with a malt backbone. There is a pine aftertaste left and hop oil left in the mouth after swallowing.

The mouthfeel is thick and bready; there is a slight bite due to the carbonation.

Overall this is not a bad IPA but it is plain, not complex. The taste is mostly pine and malt, not bad but a little more variety in the taste would be nice.
