12oz bottle with no date

orange amber look, cloudy, with a small head and minimal lacing. smell is fruity, with sweet savory malt in the background. taste is sweet and malty, with earthy floral hops in the background.

enjoyable pale, but not what I look for in one. too sweet and not enough hops is a death knell for me.

Poured into a Becker glass

A: Dark amber color with moderate carbonation. The beer is a little hazy but not enough that we can't see through it. Stars off with a weak head which turns into a very thin lace.

S: Some floral smells, a little bit of grapefruit, malts, some caramel. The beer smells like it's nicely balanced.

T: Has some bitterness from the hops, you get a piney flavor and it has a bready finish to it. I kept looking for some of the other flavors that I though I was going to get based on the nose but I couldn't get them. It's not a bad taste though, it's actually pretty good; simple, but good nonetheless.

MF: This beer is extremely carbonated. I even thought that it was overly carbonated. It sort of has a similar mouthfeel to a ginger ale or a Coca Cola. The beer also has a semi dry finish. I would say it has a medium body.

O: It's not a bad beer at all. it definitely has flavor and has a decent amount of alcohol. Once the beer warmed up the floral and piney flavors that are often found in IPA's became much more present. I wish the carbonation wasn't so strong and that the head was more consistent but other then that it was enjoyable. The lacing did not stay throughout the whole time and the beer eventually looked like I had some apple juice in my glass.
