3.63/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle without a best before date into a schooner.

A – Solid amber color and very slightly cloudy, fluffy white head that resolved after a couple minutes leaving a moderate amount of lacing.

S – Strong citrus hops on the nose; really nice and cutting. So
strong that I couldn’t get anything else.

T – Best way I could think of to describe the taste as remarkably even and bitter. The citrus hops was present from the first part of the sip and all the way through. It was supported by some very mild bready malts, but the hops were absolutely center stage.

M – This had a lighter body than its color and pedigree would have suggested. It was only mildly carbonated with no booziness.

D – Very drinkable, but also a bit unidimensional; lacked character beyond the hops to really drive me to drink more than one.

A decent IPA but not really remarkable in any dimension other than the solidity of its hops!

3.9/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy orange amber color with thin head; nice spiderweb of lacing left on glass mug. Nose of sweet juicy fruit gum ending on a botanical spiciness. Spicy kick of rye is up front on the palate with resiny, grapefruit and pine hop flavor. Ends on a sweet caramel and chocolate note. Aggressively carbonated with a medium thin mouthfeel.
