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

Served in a pint.

A - A fairly translucent amber-orange hue. Finger off white head with nice lacing.

S - Citrus hops, sweet malts and a touch of pineapple. Good, but not profound.

T - Big hops in here! Bitterness plays nicely with the sweetness from a fair malt presence. Not a ton of complexity here, just hop goodness.

M - Lively carbonation and little booze makes this a refreshing beverage.

O - Simple and does what it sets out to accomplish. Found this at an astounding $8/six-pack. Money well spent.

Appearance - one finger of white head that disintegrates within a minute. Crystal clear copper in color with good lacing.

Taste - Tons of Citrus and pine. Some fruitiness and malts on the back end.

Mouth feel - Very carbonated.

Overall - Solid hop forward IPA.
