look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Rather light in the glass with a nice orangish-straw color. A bit hazy and capped by a sticky white head.

As expected, orange is the dominant note on the aroma but it's not quite as 'in-your-face' as I thought it would be. Instead it's a nice orange note alongside the more typical fruity hop notes and a bit of malt.

Juicy and a bit floral as well in the mouth. Not really a palate-wrecker of an IPA, instead just a nice well balanced beer with tasty orange highlights. Overall, a fine beer for a quiet evening but not quite as memorable as some other HF IPAs.
