2.26/5 rDev -39.1%
Single purchased at Super Saver, Pennington Circle.
Bright shiny amber, carbonation streams, topped by I've fingers of loose big bubbly snow white head. Thin lace but good coverage.
Maybe the faintest aroma I've experienced in a IIPA. A bit of pine but I'm a long way from the forest.
A sloppy slather of depthless malt. A dash of nondescript fruit. Good bitterness underneath at least. Off taste in the finish I can't place but don't like.
Medium mouthfeel is okay.
A very disappointing IIPA.

3.4/5 rDev -8.4%
A: High turbidity factor, with macro particulate matter suspended about a glowing orange body. Chunky macro particles are bready while the head is thin, compact with a antique white tint with dull yellowish undertones. Lacing is sparse, low coverage rate, weakly holding.
S: Grassy-hay aroma, sweet toast and grahm crackers. Strength is average with a bit of dried apple slices.
T: Toasted dry sweetness for flavor followed by a dry hopping of grassy-onion hops. Good level of dry bitterness, citrus and dry herbal appeal that spikes with a sharp toasted grain and grassy-onion finale. Some dry lemon.
M: Mouthful is rough, edgy, silty feel with the malt with a scratchy residual and leafy flowery coating ont the tongue. Leaves with a dry bitterness.
O: Overall worthy ibus, though as with most ipas everything is dry and linear, focusing on the brunt dry hop bitterness rather flavor. Love the extra junk in the glass, worthy a visit for a good wallop of hops.

1.63/5 rDev -56.1%
A: Poured a clear golden/copper color with a small off-white head. Very little retention or lacing.
S: Had a definite vegetal/onion/garlic aroma. Faint citrus underneath, but the off-putting aromas really dominated.
T: The flavor profile followed the aroma, sort of cat piss and onions. Very unpleasant.
M: Hard to really tell because the flavor was so bad.
O: One of the worst beers I have had, a drainpour. Bottle date was mid-February as well, so I can't see age really being a factor.
