2.25/5  rDev -38%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured a hazy medium yellow under a white, two-finger head. Really, quite shallow for my, or most others tastes I know. The aroma was completely underwhelming as well, with notes of smoke and charcoal. Odd for an IPA. So far, nothing very redeeming about this. The taste follows suit of the aromas, and is not on style. It is very different without being adventurous in this department. Why would an IPA be smoky? I don't know. It's not just my taste, I think it is just wrong. Sorry.
Mouthfeel is light and fizzy, also off. Drinkability, I couldn't really tell you. I moved on.
