look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Poured fairly aggressively into a a tulip glass. Golden copper color with less head than anticipated given the pour and the style, about half inch. Foam dissipated quickly with less than average retention. Not much lacing.

S - Strong but not overwhelming piney hop aroma.

T - Strong hops but more malt than others of the same style. Good amount of alcohol up front that lingers for a little bit.

M - This is where this beer shines or doesn't according to your preference. Surprisingly carbonated in the beginning. The beer is thick and almost syrupy.

O - This beer is good if you like the style but I will probably not buy again. I prefer Lagunitas regular IPA.

This is my first attempt at rating a beer so...
