3.35/5 rDev -17.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Enjoyed in a pint glass
A: pours a hazy nice orange/honey color with a finger of frothy large bubbled head that is just barely off white and lingers a bit, leaves a small bit of lacing
S: resinous grapefruit hops and, i know this is an odd thing to smell but a high school locker room (sweat and stank) somehow not in a bad way
T: begins with a taste kind of like a whiskey barrel that's a bit off, moves into the nice citrus hops and then finishes with a taste like gym socks, wish i could say this was in a good way but i guess its not in an overall bad way
M: medium/strong carbonation tingle then moves into a bit of bitterness and leaves the palate dry, what i come to expect from an ipa
O: a decent ipa but to be honest there are off putting notes in the taste and a slight off scent in the nose, not sure if this bottle has turned or if this is typical of this brew, overall drinkable and id call it nice enough

3.83/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Golden light-orange color. Sudsy topper. Looks good. Could do without the frosted glass.
Pine, citrusy orange, apricot, and spicy floral notes. Lotta hoppy in the nose. Pale semi-sweet malty balance going on stung by a piquant alcohol odor.
Major pine, citrus, and spicy woodiness. A lot of bitterness, upfront, with a big malt punchiness. Excellently hoppy. A little bruising.
Mouthfeel is delightfully engaging. Carbonated well. Nice spiciness. Body has some crush to it. Points knocked for heavy heat.
Solid IPA. Not a typically West Coast, West Coast IPA.
Serving type: on-tap
