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

Poured from cold bottle into pilsner glass.

Appearance: Orangish-yellow straw with slight opacity with medium white head.

Aroma: Peach and grapefruit flavors with bits of floral and grass aromas as well.

Taste: Fruity, peach flavors with quick, balanced bitters and slightly pine-flavored hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with well-balanced hops that have a lingering aftertaste.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer as a good IPA with balanced hops. I ate it with spicy food which allowed it to balance out those flavors and gave the bitterness a refreshing, palate-cleansing feel. It would be tougher to drink this alone.

I poured this beer into my Dogfish, chalice glass. The coloring and foam is spot on. I got about two fingers of foam on top of the orange brew.

I smell a decent amount of citrus hops coming off this beer. This bottle is pretty fresh, which helps in the retention of the hop smell.

The flavor is pretty good. You definitely get the hop presence, but there isn't enough malt in there to create a very good balance.

Overall this is a pretty good beer. I recommend picking this up when it is fresh, but I would leave it alone after a little aging.
