look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into tulip, 2 finger cream colored head nice retention and lacing. Hazy bright golden in the glass. Smells of sweet malt, some pine, mango and some lingering citrus. Taste is initially light caramel sweetness, the pine is there, almost dankish. There is some grapefruit coming out in the middle and it finishes with a nice crisp bitterness. Malt is predominate throughout and nicely done.

A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color. It poured with with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The nose has aromas of floral, orange citrus, piney, and spicy hops.
T: Like the smell, the taste has a mélange of flavors including floral, grapefruit, piney, and spicy hops. There is a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With all of the hop varieties in the ingredients, it's no surprise that this beer has a lot of different aromas and flavors going on.

Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It smelled of pine, citrus and toasty malt. Sweet caramel taste with citrus and a subtle piney bitterness.

12oz bottle, sample from the brewery.

Faintest haze on this beautiful looking brew. Smells and tastes juicy, herbal, and dank. Suggestions of lime pith, blonde tobacco, green tea, melon rind, and guava. Good malt backbone that stands up to balance out this brew a bit. Bitterness is there but its not over the top. A standup IPA, worthy of a try and I'll certainly want to go back to it.
