3.08/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearence: Pours an incredibly hazy orange color with a huge, foamy tan head that lasts and lasts and lasts.

Smell: A mix of floral and citrus hops hit the nose first, with a decent malt backbone balancing them out. It's just a bit too weak smelling.

Taste and Mouthfeel: The taste is basically the same as the smell. Hops, decently balanced by malts, but honestly this seems a bit watered down. It's a bit too light and fluffy for an IPA. The mouthfeel is light, but smooth.

Drinkability and Overall: For me, this is just your run of the mill IPA. It's not bad by any means, but doesn't stand out either. Kinda boring, but otherwise pleasent. Not bad.

Glass: Penn Brewery Pint Glass
Music: "Mishaps Happening" by Quanitc

3.75/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours an amber orange with a finger of near white head. Strong retention and fantastic lacing.

S - orange, grapefruit, pears, apple, sweet fruit and less citrusy/bitter. some sweet malts too.

T - Surprisingly bitter (considering the aroma), definitely a ton of pear type flavors and some apple as well. Rindy/sticky resinous qualities and a decent heft of caramel sweetness. Dry/slightly bitter finish and aftertaste.

M - Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, sits a tad thick/sticky on the tongue.
