3.6/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a bottle into a tumbler.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with 1.5 fingers worth of off white head. Leaves a good bit of lacing on the glass.
Smell: Citrusy orange, grapefruit, and lemon notes compliment a spicy, floral hop aroma.
Taste: Bready maltiness off set with a good amount of piney, floral hops. Lacking the citrus flavors I really enjoy in a good IPA, though.
Mouthfeel: Very crisp, and easy to drink with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This wasn't a bad brew, but I was really let down by the flavor. Everything else about this beer is pretty great, but the flavor is just lacking the complexity that I've come to expect from really great IPA's. Solid brew, but not sure I'll be coming back to it, especially with how saturated the market is with IPA's right now.
