look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured for my bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Hazy orange color with a one finger off white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Hop extract or resin; Heavy pine and citrus notes

Taste: Bright grapefruit and citrus flavors with floral undertones accompanied by pale malts that keep everything in check. Resiny

Mouthfeel: Light and smooth with moderate bitterness

Overall: This is a great IPA. Very full flavored for the style and smooth and not too bitter which I like. This reminds me of a Lagunitas beer. I will definitely keep my eye out for more of this this summer. Highly recommended

Poured from a 12oz bottle, bottled 140221.

Nice chilled haze on a golden body with a solid 3-4 fingers of foam; sticky lacing clings. Sticky and sweet hops in the aroma. Flavor is nice, pineapple, tropical fruit, touch of papaya, very juicy. Clean and refreshing, a very tasty IPA!
