look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.75
A: Very light amber, almost a touch of yellow to it. Effervescent foamy head that retains well.
S: Very strong, almost perfume like fruit note. Reminds of potpurri and orange soda. Not necessarily a good thing.
T: Offputting sweet flavor right off the bat, bitterness struggles to overpower it and doesn't really succeed. Perfume smell carries over to taste a little. No real malt profile.
M: Well they nailed it here, very crisp but not watery. Finishes with a little dryness that makes the bitterness pop a little, but overall its well bodied for the intent.
O: This is what IPA would taste like if Budweiser tried it. Hop finish seems artificial and the taste is all wrong. A heavily dry hopped pale would be much better than this. Its only the second bad IPA I have had, and this might be the worst of the two.
Serving type: on-tap
