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

A- pours a clear golden yellow color with a small fizzy white head that retains for a while, before disappearing completely

S- flowery and piney hop aroma, with a hint of citrus. Biscuit malt backbone

T- piney hop bitterness up front with some floral notes kicking in mid-palate, also some fresh grassy notes as well. Toasted biscuit malt before a dry finish

M- medium body and medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel with a smooth crisp finish

O- a nice showcase of the Simcoe hop, and easy to drink

Poured into an IPA glass from a 12 oz bottle. Brought back from Ohio in a friend's luggage. 14297 stamped on bottle - maybe 2014, 29 July?

Color is hazy orange with a two finger white head. Good retention and lacing. Smell is floral and piney. Flavor starts off with a mild piney bitterness followed by some caramel-coated orange. Finish is short and mildly bitter. Body is pretty light - almost watery.

Overall, it's a good beer. Nothing special, but no major flaws. I'd like a bit more body and more complex hop aromas.
