3.95/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This brew is golden in color with a big, puffy with head that retains for quite some time, finally leaving a deep network of lace on the mug. Smell is very floral, makes me dream of hops. The frame of the taste is a husky maltiness, around which I get some real hop bitterness, but in a balanced way. Nice beer, a bit strong for me. One of the decent IPAs I have had.

Serving type: on-tap

2.94/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Served on-tap at Barcade in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a hazy copper in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation (mostly large bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass) and some light amber highlights. The beer has a quarter to half finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of bready malts with some hints of caramel sweetness along with some light aromas of citrus/orange zest hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready malts with some light notes of caramel sweetness. That is followed by some light flavors of citrus/orange zest hops that impart a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Doesn't really seem like an IPA as it is so much more malty than other examples of the style. The smooth body makes this one pretty easy to drink but I don't think I would get it again as the hops are barely present in this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a rich deep red colour with a white foamy head.

The smell is citrus hops quite faint.

The taste is roasted malts and bitter hops.

The mouth is medium with low carbonation.

Overall more malty than most ipa's with a bitter after taste without any real hop flavours.

3.2/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is hops, floral, a touch of malts. Taste is piney hops, bitter, malts seemed to have disappeared, a bit unbalanced. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.
