look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: A light amber color with almost 2 finger white head. Decent lacing
S: Upon cracking the bottle I was immediately basking in hoppy scents. Poured it gives off a piney, citrusy hoppy fragrance.
T: After the joyous smell I was hoping for a lot and was slightly disappointed. Still has a pine, grapefruit almost orange hoppiness but it is not nearly as strong as the smell would seem to indicate. Has a nice sweet malt finish.
M: Very nice carbonation gives it a medium bodied feel with a bit of effervescence.
O: Very drinkable beer. I'm glad it comes in a nice big bottle because I will be ready for more. Not quite as powerful in taste as other IPAs I would put in its class but respectable.
