People giving this beer a 4 need to try a Sculpin or Racer 5. Color is a nice dark amber. The beer has very little bouquet. An IPA should introduce itself through the nose. The first sip give a distinct dry hop bite with zero malt follow up. It reminds me of the English IPAs of old. "Balance" is not a word I would use here. Disappointed.

Hazy, medium amber in color, 1 finger thick creamy head, wonderful retention. Leaves a very thick lace along the glass.

Hops and some citrus peel aroma, not very strong in aroma though.

Not much sweetness or malt character, just hops resiny and a little citrus peel flavor.

Light in body, pretty smooth, has a refreshing quality to it

Overall not a bad beer, just a little one note.
