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

Poured from a 12oz bottle into an IPA glass.
Appearance- golden, fairly clear, low lacing.
Smell- fruity, slightly floral.
Taste- not overly hoppy, slightly dank and piney, a little dry, but well balanced.
Feel- thin.
Overall- good beer, but I thought it would have bigger favor than it provided after my smell.

Beer is so subjective I wonder if my opinion even matters. However, my first impression was that this beer needed a little more malt to balance the hops. It seems a bit dry to me, but, that may be exactly what your looking for. It has significant lacing that totally coats the sides of the glass. It smells amazing but the taste doesn't match the smell, at least for me. The 7% abv will sneak up on you and bite you in the ass, so be aware. It is a good alternative to the sweeter variations of ipa styles. A great ipa, rock solid.

Clear and fresh. Better look than nose but solid good taste.

June '17 - on draft. Pours rich copper, heavy white foam. Active bubbles. Floral malty nose. Fruity. Soft malt taste with a firm pine bitter back. Malty balance. Light peppery bitter trickled throughout throughout. Nicely carbonated. Subtle fruitiness. Really exquisite IPA. Outstanding.

Twelve ounce bottle copped from Uppercrust in Phoenix. Pours a copper ruddy hue with minimal frothing. Mellow aroma replete with hints of hops and citrus. Similar overall flavor profile.

Honestly perfect. This is a perfect IPA. Nothing special or fancy, but there's nothing wrong with that. If this was the last beer I was allowed to drink, I'd be a lucky man. Very underappreciated probably because it doesn't have a sexy name. Sad!

Thanks Brandon. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt golden amber color with a one finger sustaining white head. Bubbles roamed in and out of the head, but it still looked nice for the most part. Tired bubbly lacing clings to the glass nicely. The smell starts off with some sweet ruby red grapefruit pulp. Light citrusy-rind like bitterness runs into the blend. A little bit of pepper spice charms the underneath part of this. The taste was moderately bitter with a nice dry sweetness of the grapefruity hops lead into the aftertaste and cherish a dry citrusy sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a decent sessionable feel to it. Carbonation feels good for an AIPA as a good amount of bitterness from the hops hits my tongue in a good appropriate harsh feel. Overall, nicely done AIPA that I know I would have again.

Really excellent and one of the stardard-bearers for craft American IPAs. Classic flavors of pine and citrus, with a little lingering sweetness on the finish. Medium amber with a thick, lasting head and great lacing. Well balanced and easy to drink a few back-to-back on a hot day. Falls into the "must-try" category for me.
