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

Bottled 8/19/13

Pours golden with a slight bronze hue. A half finger white head leaves a nice lacing

Smell is dominated by sweet tangerine like hops and milder pine hop notes. malt is light and grainy. Some alcohol is also detectable.

Taste is great, there is a nice almost sour bitterness that works really nice with the orange like citrus hops. A little bit of pine and grassy flavors are also detectable. Some nice sweet caramel malt is in the finish.

Mouthfeel is good, medium body with high carbonation keeps this pretty drinkable for all the booze.

Overall this is a good ipa, glad I got to try it so fresh.
