look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, golden-orange color with one finger of head that fades slowly with thick lacing.

Aroma: Caramel malt, floral hops, some grassy earthyness, a little pine

Taste: Just a flash of creamy malt sweetness, then a rush of strong, piney bitterness. Some sweetness reappears on the the back end, but that trails off in the lingering, bitter finish. There is a definite green hop, slightly harsh quality to the finish which boarders on unpleasant.

The Rest: A decent IPA lacking in the balance department. Not enough else going on to balance out the massive hop bill. Drinkablity suffers a bit from the harsh finish as well.

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

16 oz. pint poured on tap at the brewery; unknown brewing/bottling date; drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - yellow-orange coloration; initial frothy white head settles into a subtle glass lacing; medium alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - some moderate citrus and pine aroma; distinct malt character - toasty, bready, doughy; some mild alcohol notes as well

T: 15/20 - moderate bitterness up front that opens up for a balanced hop and malt battle - some grapefruit, pine and resiny characters - with some malt character and alcohols; the malt character continues to develop in the middle of the mouth; finishes generally dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - light-to-moderate body, moderate carbonation, some alcohol presence but not fullness

O: 8/10 - don't think that this is a 90+ beer but it's a solid IPA for those who like balance in their IPAs; for $5/pint at the brewery, the price point is right too

TOTAL - 38/50
