look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a good head and lingered well.
Odor is hop citrus with grapefruit and maybe lemon. Some minor pine or green notes as well.
Taste was citrus upfront with a lot of grapefruit. Floral middle to end with a little green too. Taste was similar to smell. Finished with some nice hop bitterness.
Mouth feel is pretty decent body, but no heaviness. Good finish and nice on the palate.
Overall, and excellent IPA. Very balanced and maintains that throughout.
