look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a bottle into a Dogfish snifter. Undated

A- pours a very slightly cloudy orange with a one finger white head. Uninspiring, but nice

S- very mild orange, citrus hop aroma. Boring and weak

T- mild bitterness. Must be an old bottle, because there isn't a ton of flavor. Bah

M- really really thick...syrupy. Ugh

O- dating your bottles would help, Foothills.

Bottle from chawk as an extra in a trade.

A - Golden yellow beer with a bit of orange in it. Nice soapy head that rose up and left some good stick on the sides.

S - It's hoppy, but not super hoppy. Floral with some citrus and a malty backbone. Kind of boring.

T - Soapy, some chemical cleaner that is a bit unpleasant, and a not so great aftertaste. Some pine and grassy hops, but it's not doing enough to cover up the less than stellar parts of the taste.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation.

D - Average at best, this is not something I'd buy or drink again.

2.63/5  rDev -31%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

bottled: unknown

A: Pours a honey colored ale with excellent clarity. Single finger of off-white foam caps this and falls in a couple minutes to a quilt of the same. persistent, albeit inconsistent lacing.

S: wood, green apples, pine, resin, hints of grapefruit rind. Malt in the background, subdued but resonant. Vienna malt profile.

T: Woody (again), with metal, hints of resin. Actually surprisingly one-dimensional to me. The hops seems to mostly been added in the latter half of the boil, and don't add much to the brew IMO. As an IPA, I feel this doesn't meet the US standard. As a pale ale, yes, but not as an IPA.

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation. middle of the road.

O: Underwhelming. Would try again, wish I knew the bottle date.

poured into a GI goblet (no other clean glasses!!)

A.

Beer pours a clear amber color with about a fingers worth of off-white head that dissipates into a small ring around my glass. Some nice bubbles floating to the top however probably attributed to my choice of glass.

S.

A little weak for an IPA. Seems more like a pale ale. Slightly sweet bready malts with a little citrus to it. For the style, nothing special, but if I was told this was a regular old pale ale, it would get some decent marks.

T.

Up front bitterness...a little earthy (pine, grass, etc) moving into some slightly sweet malts. Maybe a tad too malty, like you get from an older IPA, however this bottle is only about a month ago.

M.

Almost medium bodied with good carbonation. Beer is very crisp/clean with a slightly dry finish. Pretty refreshing, but not what I want from an IPA.

O.

Nothing special. This bottle is relatively fresh and I doubt I'd enjoy it a whole lot better even if I had it on tap. A nice extra and glad I tried it, but taste more like a APA than an IPA (and it would be a pretty decent APA!). A good beer to have on a hot day...I'll give it that.

22oz bottle thanks to Mike. Poured into Bruery tulip.

A - Pours copper, white head, spotty lacing, whispy retention.

S - Bitter hops, some malt, some astringent notes. Meh.

T - Ugh. Hops, slight malts, some medicinal notes, herbal notes. Not really all that good.

M - Medium, good carbonation, oily finish.

D - Not good...at all. Why is this beer even close to an A?
