3.68/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

This beer pours out a hazy orange color with two fingers of head. The aroma is a nice mix of grapefruit and piney hops, with just a touch of that "dank" feel. The taste is nicely piney hoppy at first, but there's a touch of sharp metallic taste in the middle between the smooth, biscuity malts that throws things off the rails a bit here. I poured my second serving into a different glass in case it was a sanitation error on my part, but nope, there was a strong metallic taste. The metallic taste was amplified even further from the bottle. Perhaps a sanitation error at the brewery? It's still better than a lot of beers I've had, but it is a bit offputting.

That said, the drinkability is quite good. Maybe it was me trying to pin-point the metallic taste, but this beer went down very fast. It's a shame that there's an obvious problem with the bottle I got, since this is probably a very good beer otherwise. As it stands though, it's still a pretty good beer. I'd still recommend it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

16oz : pint glass

Poura clear golden yellow with a foamy white head.

Citrusy, lightly piney aroma and taste.

Fairly standard, medium body, foamy carbonation.

Nothing ground breaking, just a very well done IPA. Something I would definitely enjoy again.

Serving type: can
