3.6/5  rDev +13.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear amber with a thick and frothy tan head that retains impeccably and leavings impressive lacing. The aroma is all hops upfront, with citrusy and floral notes, along with caramel and toasted bread, fruity esters and some alcohol. The flavor is similar with piney and citrusy hops upfront, along with some fruity esters, flinty sharpness, toasted bread, caramel and alcohol. The mouthfeel is sharp and carbonation is a bit high. Decent IPA, nothing I would seek out though.

2.8/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A - As I began to pour this one I immediately could tell there would be little to no head, so I intentionally tried to finish the pour rough and still could not produce enough of a head to speak of. Looks flat, barely any carbonation can be seen. Is a clear amber/red color.

S - Not much smell, so it makes it kind of hard to rate. Some bready malts and some hops, but not much of either. I would rate it a 3 for average, but there is a slightly metallic smell underneath that caused me to knock this back to 2.5.

T - Again, just not much here. Average at best. Not a lot of hop flavor, not a lot of malt flavor. What is there is a balanced bready malt, so nothing offensive but nothing really good either.

M - While not quite as watery as it looks, it is still average at best.

O - Not horrible, not great. Its alright, but I wouldn't buy it again and wouldn't recommend buying it to others. Plenty of better beers out there that are readily available. Disappointing that a beer named after such a great place like blowing rock isn't better than this.
