Rather boring. A crispy malt with very light hops for an IPA. No underlying flavored, no great smell. Nothing makes this beer bad, but nothing makes it good as well.

I had this poured into a pint glass at my hotel bar in Indy, my first offering from these guys. Pretty standard IPA. Good looking copper color, I'd say definitely above average. Not a ton of taste, mild hops, some slight pine...strong aroma given the flavor. Not bad.

I was unimpressed with this brew. It had a fairly standard look to it but the beer felt kind of thin and the flavor was mostly astringent with none of the positives I usually experience in an ipa. Very little malt, lots of round bitter but no sharpness, very little hop flavor and not much on the nose. There is no bottle dating to work with so it is possible that this was an old and abused bottle. However, as it stood the beer was not worth the effort in getting it.
