look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

One finger head over a rich, unfiltered, golden color....quite pleasing. Head dissipates rapidly but lacing persists.

Aroma of rich, sweet, eclectic malts. I'm getting ripe banana and peach undertones with a hint of caramel.

Taste - slightly bitter with the same aftertaste. The rich malts prevelant in the aroma are all but hidden -- vieled behind heavy carbonation and mildly bitter monotone hops. Taste is very much a disappointment given the exciting appearance and aroma. Not much going on here at all.

Mouthfeel overwhelmed by heavy carbonation.

Drinkability is nice due to a light and frothy hit on the palette.

Overall, a slightly below average run-of-the mill IPA with little to shout about. Quite bland in fact and the monotone, slightly bitter hops, could use an injection of "spicey" eclectic flavor. One thing this beer has going for it is a light mouthfeel which bodes well for a sunny afternoon IPA rather than the heavy and bitter dinner companion which I much prefer.

Easily an inch and a half of tightly knit eggshell colored head. Golden to light amber in color with some moderate haziness. Brussels lacing. Aroma is of some slightly vegetal hops and bready malt. Flavor is more of a tropical hop flavor along with some light malt. The mouth is fairly carbonated.
