look: 3.75 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Poured a nice, slightly hazy golden color with a nice white soapy head.

Smells like a foot. I can tell there is some mint and hops, but they don't meld and smell like they're fighting. I do not like the way this beer smells, just to be clear. I, in fact, hate the way this beer smells.

Somewhat bitter, but fairly flavorless besides that. It's impressive that it can smell like a foot and taste like nothing in particular. It's a very weak taste. However, very little taste is a dramatic improvement over the smell, but not good enough for a 3. 2.5 feels fair.

The mouth feel... well it feels very carbonated but it dies quickly. The bitterness lingers for a while, but the beer doesn't feel oily. It goes down fairly easily despite the aggressive but fleeting carbonation. This is actually somewhat pleasant, if not a bit too carbonated for my preferences of IPAs.

It's important to note that I don't think a 2.5 is a bad beer. It's not a good beer, but again, I wouldn't turn it down. If this beer didn't smell like it does, it would get a 3. I wouldn't buy it unless the other choices were adjunct lagers, and I couldn't reasonably get to another store or bar. I don't recommend this brew, and I'm glad I only bought one 12 oz. bottle of it.

Minty hop nose with fresh mown grass, some light grains. Brilliant gold with a slightly yellow tinted off-white foam cap. Fruity hops attack the palate joined by citrus and pale malt with a hint of sweetness finishing with a crisp bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.
