look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

appearance is a clear copper, pours two fingers of white head that retains reasonably well until eventually settling into a thin layer of head that retains throughout.

smell; citrus fruit, bit of floral hop character, molasses.

taste; mildly fruity, citrusy hop character, hint of resiny hop oil, touch of malt in the background.

mouthfeel; light/medium body, very carbonated.

overall; enjoyable enough but unexciting, it's a difficult task for an American IPA to really stand out and this beer proves just that.
