3.16/5 rDev -16.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a 1 Pint, 6.4 Fl oz bottle into a pint glass. Best by 15-04-13.
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head.
Smell: Slight alcohol, which is surprising for a 5.6% ABV beer. Caramel malts. Where are the hops?!
Taste: Sugary caramel malt upfront with a slight green grape/white wine flavor on the back end. Fruity and light, but too malty and not enough emphasis on the hops, Isn't this supposed to be an IPA? Unbalanced.
Mouthfeel: Bone dry like champagne. Light and refreshing.
Overall: Another one that I am not too excited about. Too malty, which does not allow the Nelson Sauvin hops to shine through.
Serving type: bottle

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
