Pours a bright yellow gold with a creamy white foam head. Smells like buttery pears, faint pineapple, and honey grains. The taste is slightly bitter and hoppy with honey, pineapple, lemon, and bready malts. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Creamy and smooth. Overall a delicious and bittersweet IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pale, hazy yellow. With a bit of head.

Smell: Bitter sweet. Lot of orange peel, with a blend of pine needles. lot of citrus with a good hop aroma.

Taste: Much more bitter than there is sweet in the flavor. But it is very crisp, and refreshing.

Feel: Medium feel, medium carbonation. nice for an IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a orangish yellow hue. a finger or just more of a white head. good retention and leaving behind a decent lacing. crystal clear and strong brightness.

Smell: piney and some fruity hops. hinting towards tropical. sweet malts ranging from bready to crystal sweetness.

Taste: opens with a mix of sweet malts and hops. crystal like sweetness, light toasty and bready malts. hops come through but not quite as strongly as in the nose. pine and some citrus fruits.

Mouthfeel: light and good refreshing qualities. good dryness and some bitterness. lingers a bit but fairly clean

Overall: not a bad IPA. not quite the malt bill I look for and also the hop profile is a little weak in the taste. good dryness and mouthfeel.

L: Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Good lacing.

S: Piney hops dominate the aroma with a mild caramel malt underbelly.

F: Good Bitterness with a nice pine and floral hop presence.

F: light medium body, Medium low carbonation.

O: I like this beer. The overall hop presence isn't very strong for an IPA. I'm wondering if this one may have been on the shelf awhile. Great flavor though. I may edit this review when I can get one from my normal beer store who monitors shelf life. Still a great beer.

12oz, bottled on 070815 thanks to my friend, Derek, for grabbing this while on the road in Ohio.
A - deep golden body capped with a creamy white head that eventually fades to a thin layer of foam
S - juicy, fruity, and citric with grapefruit, orange, piny hops, caramel
T - smooth flavors and very easy to drink with notes of juicy grapefruit, mandarin zest, caramel, toasted grain, pine, faint passion fruit in the background
M - smooth yet resinous, fuller body, finishes pungently bitter and dry with pine and grapefruit lingering on the palate
O - really solid beer here. Glad to try it & I'd buy it again!
