look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Amber beer with some bubbling in it, only a little bit of head on the pour. Seems to be very much as described when it comes to IPAs.

Smell: a very hoppy floral aroma, i really like the smell of this beer. This smells as described by the beer style. Almost smells sweet but full.

Taste: Not as hoppy as it smells, but it is a floral taste. Full and crisp. The aftertaste isn't much to brag about. Not bad.

Mouthfeel: Thick beer with low carbonation makes for a good mouthfeel. Definitely drinkable.

Overall: Not a bad IPA, but not as hoppy as i would expect an IPA to be. I did enjoy it!

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

10 oz pour into wide glass from Lures cask

A-Pour is hazy and golden. Fast dissipation of head. Decent lacing.

S-Aroma is tropical fruit and pine.

T-Taste is very tropical fruit, pineapple sweetness. Pine notes follow with solid hop bitterness with a malt backbone.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced and lightly carbonated.

O-overall a decent DIPA that is not super hoppy.
