Pours a bright orange/yellow with an off white head that trails the glass. The smell is full of both bread and grapefruit citrus notes. The taste is all about the hops though with full hop grapefruit flavor in the beginning and then mellowing out to a nice finish. A lingering aftertaste, but it was very nice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color. The head is a finger high and white in shade. It has a superbly sticky texture and good retention; the former allows it to leave a nice ring of lacing on the glass. Very aesthetically pleasing. (4.5)

Smell: There doesn't seem to be a significant hop presence here. There is a bit of flowers and apricot coming from the Amarillo hops, but the primary note is a sweet, white bread maltiness (which I prefer to the more burnt caramel/toffee I get from darker IPAs). Actually, there isn't a significant anything to this IPA. I'd reckon the nose about 15% too subtle for its own good, in fact. (3)

Taste: Flavors of nettle, flowers, and apricot hit the palate first. Between the beginning and ending hop flavors (though the latter is more of a bitter finish), there's a pleasant maltiness lurking in the mid-taste. Instead of obstructive toffee, the flavor is closer to sweet bread, or maybe even sugar cookie. Nothing too exciting here, but at least it's not loaded down with crystal malt. (3.25)

Mouthfeel: It's a bit flabby as far as IPAs go: it has a full body and a sweet finish that hinders its ability to go down the palate. Carbonation is somewhat weak...maybe that's why. Luckily, the bitterness gives it some drinkability back. (3)

Overall: This isn't your typical crystal-malt-and-piny-hops IPA; this is more floral, with a lighter (yet still sweet) maltiness. It's still maltier than I prefer, but I think its malt backbone is genuinely likable. I'd gladly give a fresher sample another chance. (3.25)

3.24/5: Not much stands out here, but at least they got the maltiness right
