3.78/5 rDev -8.5%
Bottle to tulip. Pours a deep copper color with a small creamy looking head on top. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, toffee, a small hint of grassy hops. Flavor follows with mostly caramel malts, very sweet, and very little btiterness. Not much citrus like I like from my IPAs. Slick and sweet mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation. Overall I just don't get this one. Maybe I got an old bottle.

Pours a ruby color with lots of white head and lacing.
Smell is not as strongly hopped as I would like. Tangerine and honey are present. Slight notes of ripe fruit, such as banana, is also present.
Taste has lots of sweet malts up front. Little bit of citrus but not overpowering. Lots of nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. Honey presence throughout.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied.
Overall this was nice. Not my favorite of the style. Lacking a little in the hops, but good.
