A-An orange blonde malt hue with moderate carbonation

S-I smell more of the malt than I do of the hops so by smell alone it does not live up to the IPA billing.

T-I think this beer misses the boat. At first you taste the malt, which has body and bread type character to it, and then there is a mild and I mean mild hop presence. I think this beer falls more into the category of an IPA.

O-It's what I would consider a good but not very memorable pale ale.

Spicy, herbal hops, citrus and light grains on the nose. Pours hazy gold with a 1” fluffy white head that produces intricate lace. Palate of light malts that become richer and more prominent as the beer warms. Underneath, an earthy woodiness, biscuit and nuts, with very light fruit in the background. The bitterness is firm but not harsh. Medium body and carbonation.

A. Aggressive poor ½ inch foamy yellow head. Very little carbonation after the poor. Color is spot on with apple juice.
S. Hops, fruit, citrus fruit.
T. Taste is a little weak for an IPA. Alcohol taste is slightly astringent. Taste the way leaves smell as they decay in autumn. Bitter. I enjoy the autumn taste “decaying leaves”. Taste like coriander?
M. Thin, dry, watery, and gritty. Gives me cotton mouth drinking it.
O. Pretty watery but good. Would recommend drinking on an autumn day while eating fish tacos. Little to no buzz for 6%ABV
