look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear and bright orange. Only semblance of carbonation is a thin line of bubbles around the edges.
Aroma is of mellow caramel malt and slight citrus hops. Faint pine and earthy hops as well. Not very strong, but enticing none the less.
Flavor is much of the same. Very malty, with an overlying hop presence that mixes slight citrus, zesty pine and a bit of rose and floral hop too. The malt is bready and sweet caramel tasting. Bitterness is the lower end of medium.

Mouthfeel is a bit heavily carbonated. despite the lack of head. A little soapy towards the end, but nothing cloying. Medium body, good bitterness at the end that lingers nicely and tingles.

A pretty good beer. The hops weren't overpowering, but as I maneuvered through the pint it got hoppier. A good enough ipa to warrant buying again.
