2.9/5  rDev -24.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: Rustic orange with a fair clarity and a medium sense of effervesce within. The head is foamy and large, peanut shell colored, porous, with a fair rate of retention. Large, spongy dabs of lace with a modest coverage. Good overall.

S: Sweet sugary grains, sugar coated fresh grapefruit. Citrus, stalky with a fair strength.

T: Flavor is sweet upfront, small toasted nature, turning to aa musky, old stale citrus of hops. Seems to be turning. The sweetness in the beginning is almost intoreable. The hops do seem to get a little better and tolerable with depth, but honestly seem to be a bit sour and old, stale, with a very flat line of complexity.

M: Ok carbonation, some alcohol laced stale citrus/lime with a warmth of alcohol.

O: Overall feels a bit old, musky, overally sweet at first, with a coarse helping of hops that dont seem to blend well, very rough around the edges, not particularly tasty, just rough. Pass, no bottling info, maybe an old can? Could be better on draft? Roll the dice on a single, dont bet on a sixpack, craps.

Serving type: can

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance is a copper color beer that is slightly fizzy. There was a half finger of head that dissipated rather quickly but left some nice lacing behind. The nose is only mildly hoppy. The dominant flavor is an almost bubble gum sweetness that is desperately odd. There was also a quick shot of spiciness which is even odder. To top it off, the hoppiness on the finish was almost non-existent.

I’d say this is definitely misclassified as an IPA but I have no idea what it category it belongs in.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

16 oz can.

Pours a a clear dark copper amber with a frothy pale cream head. Fades to a thick collar, trace lace. Stale malt nose, bread, floral, and biscuit. More hop bitterness throughout flavor than expected, citrus and grassy, with a strong caramel malt body. Medium fully body, strong carbonation, bready, bitter finish. I assume this is an older can, and despite the nose being horrible, I suspect this is actually a nice resiny IPA.
