look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Clear gold with a perfect head and good lacing. Quite a bit of carbonation.

Smell: Citrus, pine, and floral hops. Nice.

Taste: Citrus, pine, grassy malts, apricot, and toasted caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly dry, with a surprisingly mellow bitterness in the aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. One of the smoothest and well balanced IPAs I’ve ever had. I don’t know if my tongue could handle a fresh one from the brewery.
