look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Aroma is biscuit malt and pine dominant, with accents of grapefruit.

Flavor is more citrus pith at the base, with an aggressive, overly bitter, earthy finish.

An IPA that fades in and lingers with bitter and citrus.

Taste Rating in Words: A marathon, you hold steady throughout and drag into the finish-line, Then you realize, the finish-line isn't the finish, you decide you'd like to continue by running home because you're a beast that can't be stopped.

L: Drank it from the can, didn't see it.
S: Smells like grapefruit and maybe a bit of mint.. It' a refreshing smell
T: Overwhelmingly bitter. It does have a nice citrusy after taste though
F: Light-medium carbonation, consistency slightly higher than water
O: If you've not had and IPA before, you may want your first one to be under 100+ IBU. For a drink with this much bitterness, it is very good. It doesn't quite match my tastes though and I probably wont buy it again.

Top of the line for oklahoma. Pours a deep amber color. The nose is floral with deep hop aromas. Taste is an excellent blend of floral hop, bitterness and malt. Crisp finish, very nice
