This is certainly a more citrusy IPA. Hoppy and flavorful, a pretty good beer with a little higher alcohol.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Meh. Malty and dry. Aggressive hops are earthy and pine-forward. It screams east coast mid-90s IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden copper color with an ample light tan head. Aroma of resinous hops. Taste is nicely malted with notes of apple and caramel. This is offset nicely by rich spicy hops leaving a bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour w/ a thin white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is surprisingly overpowered by malt w/ a hop undertone. The taste is a nicely balanced blend of malt & hop throughout. A very solid beer but nothing in particular makes it stand out.

T: Initially citrus hops (grapefruit) with notes of mild malts and a bitter finish that does not linger and no alcohol taste.
