3.75/5  rDev -8.1%

Look: Deep golden honey with a super aggressive white head

Smell: super dank smell. Getting pine, honey, grapefruit, orange, lemon, lime, and sweet malt on the finish.

Taste: Huge hop punch at the beginning. Getting pine, lime, lemon, tangerine, pineapple, more pine, kiwi, honey, and sweet malt with pine on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with mild carbonation. It's really smooth but sticky and resiny. Hop bitter bite rounds it out with a dry finish that lingers on the tongue. Alcohol is just barely there.

Overall: Solid IPA. Nothing revolutionary but a solid pick up if your in the mood.
