look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Chilled bottle into a glass. Courtesy of Sideswipe. Thanks, John!

A: Pours a murky bronze body with a reddish tone. I prefer clarity in my IPAs, and this isn't one I'm going to make an exception for. Pours with a 1" beige head that retains poorly. Eventually, the body clears up.

S: Floral with citrus, earthy, and grassy tones.

T: Floral up front, segueing into flavors of citrus, earth, and grass. It's very bitter, especially on the back end. The flavor is unremarkable as the beer doesn't have much heft or pop to bring out the hop profile.

M: Low-medium bodied (on the thin side) with low carbonation as I was drinking. The beer needs more presence.

O: I drainpoured it. :(

A: Pours a clear orange with a finger of beige head head that fades into a frothy ring with no lacing.

S: Bright citrus dominate the nose--orange and pineapple mostly, but with some grapefruit as well. The finish has some slight pine aromas.

T: Pineapple citrus up front followed by grapefruit. Bitter rind flavors follow after and the beer finishes incredibly bitter. Several seconds after I have a sip, my mouth is coated in bitterness that reminds me of getting drops of Novocaine on my tongue at the dentist's office. Unpleasant, to say the least.

M: Medium body with mid-light carbonation, this beer is slightly watery.

O: This beer smells great, but unfortunately the overwhelming bitterness ruins it and makes it pretty much undrinkable.

Clear orange colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is sweet and hoppy with a citrus rind aroma. There is a slight cinnamon stick and cedar wood scent to this one.

Starts out bittersweet. Bitter and woody with a significant onion taste. Taste doesn't deliver, just woody and bitter with lots of astringency and that onion after taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a disappointment. Needs to lose the onion and wood and dry hop more.

Hop bomb. Poured slightly chilled with gigantic, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that lasts all the way down and lots of clingy lace. Color is a nice, clear amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is a blend of hop, barnyard, yeast, malt. Flavor is totally dominated by hop; very bitter with a little malt coming at the end. Carbonation is ok, but body is confused by the intense bitter. Thank goodness for that smidgen of malt. Finish is like flavor, super long, and off flavors courtesy of hop. Also a little boozy.

3.13/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours a copper gold hue with a good amount of haze from the settled yest. Nice off white head, two fingers high and leaves some nice lacing on the glass even though the retention is sub par.

Very floral ipa, robust pineapple and dark citrus notes. Steady backing of caramel malts that gets a little dank and musty from the yeast on the back end.

Pale and bready malts with a decent does of pine hop character. Quickly the drink turns musty and dank as the finish is dominated with a herbal vegetative quality that coats your mouth and supplies a dull bitterness. Dries well, appropriate malt but the hop flavor is harsh compared to nose.

Medium heavy body with settled yeast. Average to below average carbonation. Dries very well but the dull and dank hops throws off the quality. Very hard to finish the bottle.

Ho hum it's another IPA, decent nose, probably the most pineapple forward that I've ever smelt but nothing else to write home about. Hop flavors are piney and dank, body is sluggish, better to share the bottle.

On tap @ Hangar 24

Look: Orange in color and mildly translucent with a 1/8 off white head and no real retentino

Smell: Some citrus upfront with some piney resiny hops in the background

Taste: Very similar to the nose with some orange peel in the foreground and the pine notes in the background a bit of a one way street and not very complex but still not bad

Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation and a bit sticky

Overall: This is a good single hop ipa

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle poured into a mug.

Appearance: Pours a dark amber color, somewhat cloudy. Light tan head with decent retention. Some sediment visible.

Smell: Hardly any aroma... just a hint of malts.

Taste: Light caramel malt flavor. Some mild hop flavors come through towards the finish and into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Relatively smooth.

Drinkability: Moderate ABV, but the taste isn't too inspiring

A very average IPA - isn't bad, but not very memorable. A bit heavy-handed on the malts, over the hop characters.
