3.56/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, amber/copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong hops (citrus & floral), slight sweet malt, hint of earthy malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong hops, slight dry hop, and slight sweet malt. Overall, this is strongly hop-centric, not much balance amongst the other flavors.

Pours a caramel color with a nice head on it. Smells of caramel malts and some floral, bitter hops. Taste follows suit - sweet caramel malts open it up. These fade to a subtle fruitiness that is overwhelmed by some bitter hops with a touch of floral character. Smooth body goes down easily. Overall, this is a pretty decent IPA. I was expecting more Belgian yeast out of it but it was still pretty delicious. Recommended for sure while it lasts.
