Picked up recently in Columbus, OH (was told that it had come in relatively recently considering the proximity of the brewery to the store)

The beer pours a dull copper color with a thin, creamy off-white head that laces. The nose is...absent. Possibly a subtle citrus, but I cant say for sure. The taste is equally unrewarding and underwhelming. There is are heavily muted hops upfront followed by a stifled sweetness. I suspect Zeelandy hops comprise most of the hop profile (with their onion and cheesy weirdness), but I really can't taste much to verify. The beer becomes slightly more appealing as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, effervescent with a hint of sweetness and twinge of lemon rind bitterness in the finish. This is really an unimpressive beer that I wouldn't even call a pale ale let alone an IPA.

12 oz bottle into tulip.

A: Hazy amber golden color with an inch's topping of frothy off-white head. Thick, webbed lacing left behind.

S: Very citrusy; lots of grapefruit and pineapple. Hints of pine come out, there's a light woodiness, and a faint, grainy cracker/biscuit malt note in there.

T: Balanced; pretty sweet and malty, with a hint of alcohol. The citrus flavors from the nose come through here too, although the finish has more pine flavor.

M: Thin-bodied with lively carbonation adding most of the body. Slightly sticky, with a dry finish.

O: It's an alright beer, and goes down pretty easily for its ABV, but there's not a lot that stands out to me. I'd consider giving it a second chance though, especially if I see it on tap.

A- Hazy orange amber with golden highlights. Nice off white head but not too wrinkly or hoppy looking. awesome retention and ample lacing.

S- big citrus aroma, mainly orange, grapefruit, pineapple and very floral. Hints of pine and like peel with a toasty sweet malt background. Becomes more savory as it warms.

T- nicely balanced flavor. Hops are earthy and almost tomato on the palate with plenty of citrus and pine bitterness. There's just enough malt sweetness to hold everything down. All manner of softened tropical fruits with a pinch of cinnamon malt spice and peppery at the end. Lingering leafy and grapefruit hop flavor in the finish.

MF- juicy slick feel with welcomed zesty carbonation. Bitterness is felt all over the palate and throat.

D- another good ipa coming out of my state. It's crazy how many breweries are popping up here lately.
