3.79/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Golden color and clear. Moderate head but it sticks around throughout the tasting leaving streaks of blanketing lace.

Strong, grassy hop aroma. Think freshly mowed leaves.

Starts mild enough with a neutral pale malt base. The bitterness only kicks in (strongly) on the swallow. Thin body for the style but the carbonation is appropriate. The aftertaste goes on for a very long time.

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

On-tap 11/13/2015 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a medium off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with very sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering hops presence comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a decent IPA to drink for a while.

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

Look - golden color with a sticky white/tan head
Smell - citrus and tropical fruit hop scents
Taste - a lot like the smell but more tropical fruit than the smell and with a great malt backbone
Feel. Warmer it gets the more bitter it gets and it makes the tongue start to curl.
Feel - medium body and medium carbs.
Overall - fruity hoppy beer, pretty good but better when it's real cold.
