look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Nice. Good white foamy head.
Smell: Strong piney hops. Getting a sense I'm going to be bowled-over.
Taste: Tastes like it smells. Strong hops up front, little substance otherwise.
Feel: Somewhat dry.
Overall: I've tried many examples of this style, but the problem I'm having is consistency. Hop content varies so much from beer to beer within the style that it's hard to get a grip on what an American IPA is. I'd probably put this with Dogfish Head's 90 Minute as a DIPA. Needs more character to be an AIPA, IMO.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Honey golden color with lacing and head of 2 fingers

Smells of cracker malt backing with pine and grapefruit

Taste is pretty bitter with honey notes, rinds and light toffee malts

Feel is carbonated and biting, aggressive

Not a fan really, a very linear, toffee-infused piney pale ale.
