2.55/5  rDev -23.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Cloudy, tea-colored beer with no head. None. Also, the aroma is pretty weak. I'm starting to wonder how old this bottle is; I can't find a freshness date on the anywhere. Odors of sweet orange and biscuit; I can't detect much else. Flavor is bitter orange peel, which tastes a little burnt. Undertones of caramel and dough. This is my first beer from Mt. Carmel and I'm a little underwhelmed; I hope their other selections are better.

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

12 FL OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It looks like a sunset. It has an orange center, gradually lightening towards the edges where in is yellow. This beer is hazy and topped with two inches of beige head.

S - For an IPA it has a lot of malt in the smell. I get some bread/biscuit. I do get a little pine from the hops.

T - As soon as I took a drink I thought I bought an old six pack. The malt is strong with a pine finish. This taste a lot maltier than most IPA's that I have tried. However, the finish does have a decent amount of pine.

M - Thick for an IPA. It looked thick when I poured it, and the mouthfeel is pretty full. It is very viscous.

O - This beer is maltier than I like my IPA's, and I prefer citrus flavors to pine. This is not an IPA that I will revisit unless I would find it on draft.

For those who are new to IPA's and want a lighter introduction to this style, I would recommend this IPA. For IPA aficionados, there are clearly better/stronger IPA's out there. That being said, this IPA is OK and my ratings reflect this. I'd be interested to try this again at their brew pub in Cincinnati because my experience has shown that draughts at their brewery generally taste better than bottles from grocery stores.
