2.75/5  rDev -17.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Not much head on a clear orange body. Aroma is a bit weak with mostly candy sugar and generic citrus. Flavors of malts mostly as expected for the english style with generic and non descript earthy and citrus hops. Grassy bitterness but not in a good way. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one is just not very good. The malt character is good for the style but the bitterness and hops are too medicinal.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at Sin City Brewing (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours a slightly hazy dark golden orange to amber in color with some very light hints of visible carbonation. The beer has a thin soapy off-white head that quickly dissipates into a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer. Light lacing is observed.

S: Overall the aroma for this beer is rather mild. There are light hints of earthy and floral hops.

T: The beer has a sweet caramel malt body with a light amount of hop bitterness. Light hints of earthy and floral hops.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly chewy and a little dry in the finish.

O: Very easy to drink and refreshing, since the hoppiness/bitterness is light overall. Could definitely be a session beer. Nothing special but certainly one I could have again.

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

Copper color pour, lots of sediment, almost no head, but when poured into a plastic cup, what can you do? No hop aroma. Just a bitter thing going on.

Taste, bitter, but not from hops, like a bitter plastic burnt corrosiveness, with tons of grittyness in the mouthfeel, like they just dumped some sand from the beach into the kettle. Its not just that it was an English IPA, it was just lacking, it didn't even have the mild sweetness hop thing going for it, I think they just classified it this way because it would allow for more cheapness. Its not like it doesn't seem that if any hops were used (a reasonable question) that they were probably high alpha acid types used in miniscule proportions simply to jack that bitterness up.

One of the worst IPA's I've ever had.

Poured on-tap at the bar in the Venetian. The beer is a deep and vibrant copper-brown color, with a nice, dense head. It has a lighter hops aroma in comparison with American IPAs. On initial tasting, the flavor of hops hits the back of the tongue, instead of front-tongue of most American IPAs. There is a very mild, but hoppy aftertaste, which is pleasant. Very smooth in the mouth. Another of Sin City's brews that warranted a growler fill on our way home.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the tap into a plastic cup, nice slightly hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma was mild hop forward with some pepper spice, taste held a mild citrus hop tang. Mouthfeel was crisp and smooth with a oily finish and a bitter edge. Overall a nice tang up front with a refreshing roll over the tongue and settles in the back with a bitter finish. Went well with a Nathan's Hotdog in Las Vegas, fresh from the tap and while its simple everyone can enjoy it even if IPA's are not a favorite.
