3.14/5 rDev -13.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3.25
Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- Finger and a half fluffy off-white head with long retention. Amber colored IPA with very high clarity. Looks alright.
S- Maltier than I had expected. Candi sugars? Another surprise. Aroma is less like an IPA and more like a Belgian strong ale in my opinion. Not bad, but unexpected.
T- Tastes alcoholic and with caramel malts it seems like... not an IPA. Marshmallow, butter, caramel and some earthy north west hops. Odd balance of flavors.
M- Watery, very watery.
O- Relatively disappointing beer. Not what I expected.

Canned 5/29/13 - poured into glass.
Head rises slowly into tan foam, brew sits deep, clear, ruby red.
Mild, dry, airy, earthy, grassy aroma. Not a stand out IPA aroma...
Very light in flavor, but holds a heavy burn. Not very complex or smooth, kinda harsh with dry pine flavor. Thin, watery, not impressive. Nicely smooth and complementing carbonation, distracting dry burn in the back of my throat. Pinesol and Mr. Clean come to mind.
I imagine Kettle House can do better, providing more vivid flavors and deeper complexity. Can't quite recommend, but drinks (kinda) easy for a hot day.

3.55/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance- orange amber with thin lacing on the glass
Smell- mild light malt sweetness, some of the floral hop character comes to play as well but is on the lighter end
Taste- hop bitterness is on the lighter side and sweetness is a bit subtle without much assertion
Mouthfeel- light and easily drinkable
Overall- mild IPA, a very slightly upped grain and hop bill would distinct this beer a bit more. I've tasted this in a can and I remember it being more impressive.
Serving type: on-tap
