look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a glass, copper color with a foamy head. Smells of herbal and earthy hops with some citrus and pine, tastes extremely hop forward with hops that are, as mentioned in other reviews, somewhat "generic." Medium body. It is a decent IPA, not too special.

Overall, this is a very high end, middle of the road IPA in my opinion. It has a great amber pour and a refreshing citrus aroma and aftertaste. I do not find this Brew in my area of North Carolina very often so when I do find it I get as much as I can.

Tastes like 1,000 IPAs released from 2000 to 2010. Not only derivative, but dated. Sorry for the snark, but this strikes me as one of those beers the brewer thinks they get right because it imitates many other beers in the same style, but in reality they get it wrong because there is nothing distinctive about it.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

Overall: enjoyable, drinkable, fairly balanced for an AIPA.

Look: light amber, peach tea colored. Lingering, sudsy head.
Smell: grapefruit aromas from the hops. Fresh and juicy smell. Also a touch musty.
Taste: some sweet, fruity high notes from the hops. Then a strong bitterness at the back of the tongue. Some of the malty base comes through in the aftertaste.
Feel: medium body.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Very average lacing.

S: An incredibly average aroma of hops, citrus, and malt.

T: Tasted of a mild shot of citrus (lemon, grapefruit, especially), light malt notes, some pine mixed in, way too much hops, a little caramel, and an herbal quality. Some of the ingredients of here are welcome, but they're overpowered by the obnoxious hops content. Very uneven, to say the least.

F: A good amount of carbonation with an overly bitter finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: This is just one of those beers that's too bitter and uneven to be successful.

A: This poured a clear copper with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like grapefruit and pine, with some dry earthy malt.
T: It tasted like earthy pine and grapefruit, with some dank herbal hops. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M; It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was a decent IPA with clean but basic scent and taste. The body was ok, and the finish was relatively smooth, so it was pretty easy to drink. Not bad but forgettable.
