4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has very short description, freshness date and a 7.25% abv.
Appearance: It has beautiful light to medium amber hues with a tall and sticky off white head on top. The body also has a light haze and some nice visible carbonation flowing up to the head. As I drink the slow settling leaves lots of sticky lace patterns on the glass.
Smell: Right from the pop of the cap I get citrusy hop notes right up in my nose. Getting it into the glass it opens up with big citrusy grapefruit, sweet orange, peach and floral notes over light bready and pale biscuity maltiness.
Taste/Palate: Right up front there are nice sweet citrusy notes. Grapefruit and sweet orange marmalade notes flow across the tongue and over a mild bready malt base. This all thins out towards the finish and there is a very mild citrusy/floral hop bitterness in the end. The overall mouth feel is a light medium with a well balanced carbonation.
Notes: To start, this is one heck of a beautiful IPA. Its aroma is very pleasing as well as the juicy hops up front. It finishes a bit on the light side but overall I feel itís still a very solid beer.

This is delicious. The hops aren't overbearing and it isn't too thick. Goes down smooth with a crisp hop flavor. Not the fruitiest of IPAs, but there is a lot going on here. Deceptively strong. Certainly a go-to IPA for me.

Had this from a bottle last night, very floral/fruity, very well balanced and smooth, some bitterness but not a lot.
Never heard of this one before and was very pleasantly surprised.
I would buy this one again, even non IPA drinkers should like this one.

Draught. Slight hops aroma, light amber color, small off-white foamy head, slightly sweet hoppy taste, low carbonation, long finish with moldy aftertaste. The aftertaste ruins the beer a bit.
