3.3/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5
A: Nice cloudy gold color with a fluffy white head of 1 finger. Good retention and nice lacing.
S: Lighter smell than many IPAs. Hops are there, but subdued, malt smells more sugary than grainy.
T: Nice strong grainy malt, and a nice hop following. Has an alkaline taste I don't really like, though. The hops stick with you after swallowing. Malt tastes slightly toasted. After a few swigs, it starts tasting like regular beer, though. OK for a house beer, but doesn't compare to the luxury IPAs on the market.
M: Overcarbonated and watery, this is one of the worst feeling IPAs I've had. A bit astringent. Light body. Oily.
D: Drinks alright except for the carbonation - burns a lot going down. Easy to put down since it's so light.
Serving type: bottle
