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

Appearance: Pours a dark golden color. The head recedes too quickly and there needs to be more carbonation. The head laces nicely until you take a sip. Then the head is gone, and so too is the lacing. That sucks.

Smell: There's a slight plum-like hop smell, but it's weak.

Taste: There's a really nice mango/pine hop thing going, but not much more.

mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation.

Overall: It will satisfy a hop jonesin' , and it's a better than average beer, but there's many better beers.

I had this beer on tap in Atlanta. It pours a one finger lacy head and a beautiful orange color. Nose is citrus forward with a nice fresh bread undertone. Initial taste is grapefruit with a surprisingly mild hop burn on the backside. It certainly does not "execute" your taste buds. The mouthfeel and overall taste is thin compared to west coast IPA's like Pliny Elder or Lagunitas Maximus, which I believe it is trying to emulate. Overall, it is a good effort and if you like the style it's worth a try.
