3.59/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured a light brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light herbal hop and soft sweetness.

The taste offered a trace hop and a light doughiness.

The mouthfeel was full for the ABV with a lazy carbonation.

Overall an underperforming session IPA. It doesn't stand up to the other market performers.

Serving type: on-tap

3.8/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

It pours copper with frothy white head. Smell is hops and a subtle earthiness. Flavor is fresh, floral hops with a clean, not too bitter finish. Honestly, this reminds me why Sierra Nevada was the first craft beer (no etymology wars please :) ) I tried and liked. And it reminds me, although I am a die-hard Belgian ale fan, I was first a fan of IPA's. Mouthfeel is light and soft. Overall, this is a really nice, really approachable version of the style.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Nice looking beer with a decent head. Seemed kind of, I don't know, dry (?) in my mouth. Has some good fruit at the front of the mouth, but after it sits there it doesn't have a nice hoppy bitterness, it just seems odd. I'll drink it, but it's not my favorite.
