look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

22oz. bottle for $6.99

Look: Clear dark amber gold with thick vanilla head. Nice lacing as it goes down and lots of legs keeping the head nice a full.

Smell: Sweet citrus hits the nose with a surprisingly big sweet malt back bone. Getting pineapple, sour apple, lime, honey, white grapes, all wrapped up in a nice malty package

Taste: Bitter hop punch at first. Then honey covered lime which fades into more tart lime and lemon, pine, grapefruit, and more resiny pine. A sweet malt backbone brings up the rear but does nothing to had that piney bitterness that hit first.

Mouthfeel: Light on the tongue at first but the hops give it a sticky resin that fills out the body to a more medium body type.

Overall: The nose on this was quite nice. The taste on the other hand lost me a bit as the bitterness wrecked and nuances that nose had. Would love to see the bitterness tamed and more of that lime/sour apple meld with the pine! With all that being said this is just a good west coast IPA in a market filled to the brim with great ones.

22 ounce bomber poured into a Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip glass

A: Pretty clear, orange amber color, white head, not much lacing.

A: A slight tropical hop aroma, no alcohol on the nose, a decent smell.

T: Bitter, not getting much tropical citrus flavors, not much on the flavor. Bitterness lingers.

M: Juicy mouthfeel, medium does not finish dry.

O: I was expecting more than what I got, a basic IPA, nothing outstanding but does not disappoint. Probably would not buy again. Not my type of IPA.
