look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

gold with a slight shade of amber. clear. white moussey head. good retention.

big hop aroma. grass and pine mostly. some grapefruit and floral. no malt aroma.

sweet upfront. this gives way to grassy and piney hop flavors. and a nice bitterness. the bitterness in the end is not too huge, but it does linger. no alcohol flavor. no malt flavor, its sweetness can only be sensed in the beginning.

medium/full mouthfeel. smooth. soft.

overall this is nice. though i do wish i could taste the malts a little.

A - Pours a cloudy amber to gold color, thick white head that sticks around.

S - Spicy hop aroma, biscuit, slight candy smell.

T - Surprisingly, a malt forward IPA. I get a big, rich malt/biscuit flavor, followed very quickly buy a mild spicy hop flavor.

M - Medium to full, mostly because of that big malt taste. Not cloying or even overly bitter. Stays with you, but not sticky feeling.

O - Nice drinking IPA, and does not feel like 7.3% while you are drinking it.
