REVIEW:Appearance (5%): Poured clear golden-orange into a cup. Sudsy surface, minimal head. 4.25/5
Smell (25%): Predominantly malty with hoppy qualities. 3.75/5
Taste (40%): Mostly malty, with a bit of citrus-hop flavors. A bit of alcohol detected, which is not surprising when getting a beer at 9% ABV. 3.75/5
Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full body, but very smooth. Good carbonation. 4/5
Overall (20%): A decent Double IPA. Probably a bit too malty for my liking to drink regularly, but I also could not pass up this beer being a $1.00 (discounted) option at the local liquor store. Another brewery I had to try in KC because Crown Valley Brewing does not ship to the Pacific NW. 3.75/5
Final Weighted Rating: 3.8/5
