3/5 rDev -20.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5
Poured a standard straw with white head. Pretty, but not outstanding.
The nose gives a preview replete with fresh floral/grassy notes. Almost an earthy undertone.
Unfortunately, the taste did not really follow the nose. The taste is more dry straw background fronted by a pilsner bitterness that just kind of ruins it for me. A little bit of hops somewhere in there as well, but almost more of an Imperial Pilsner than an IPA.
Drinks easily enough, but just kind of tastes BMC but better done. If you're really curious go ahead and check it out, but definitely not worth going out of your way for.

4.18/5 rDev +10.3%

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.
