3.23/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Live review.

A: Pours evenly with a finger white head. Leaves a nice lace. Light gold to copper color. High clarity. Looks like your average IPA. Nothing special.

S: Simple aroma. Mild on the hops. Floral. Very basic. Not much complexity or mixture.

T: Not a lot going on here either. Somewhat bitter and a little hoppy. Minor sweetness that quickly gives way to the hops. Minimal complexity for an IPA but offers the kick you would come to expect. Good yet simple overall.

M: Light to medium body. Sits well and goes down smooth. Seems to be a bit over carbonated for an IPA, but not by much. Has a nice crisp finish to cap it off.

O: Easily drinkable with a nice finish. May be the best value IPA that is widely available. The appearance and scent are average at best so pouring into a glass is not necessary and almost detrimental due to the lackluster appearance. But the taste and body are what you would expect of a solid IPA. This is a great value brew for when you need to pick up a 12 pack for the weekend and an IPA is the only thing that will hit the spot. Nothing special here, but a solid IPA that I would recommend to any beer drinker, not just IPA fans.
