3.58/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle with a best before July, 2011 notched on the label.
Poured into a Liefmans Cervoise.

A-> pours a beautiful deep amber/tawny-esque color with just about a full finger of head with lots of sticky lacing. Fabulous nucleation (thanks in large part to the glassware I'm sure but still worth noting)

S-> bouquet is tough to place. muted florals, definite spicy grassyness yet no fruity esters or anything resembling citrus is detectable. Leafy hops are present as are bready/biscuity malt aromas albeit very subtle/faint.

T-> Interesting. Hops are obviously prevalent however without the dominating bitterness. The grassy notes from the nose are indeed here but what really took center stage are the malts. Slightly sweet at the start and through the middle with a the bread/biscuit taste showing up as it rolls over the tongue. Finishes with a sweet crispyness.

M-> Very clean, crisp, and refreshing. Fairly light in body with good carbonation.

O-> Very different than most IPAs that I've had, granted my palate isn't the most developed or mature so take that with a grain of salt. But this doesn't mean the beer is bad by any means, just unique and in fact it is quite drinkable and I would imagine will be very refreshing in the coming, warmer months. I would try this again for sure....

3.83/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Consumed directly from can.

A - Can't really tell from the can, but looks to be a pale yellow color.

S - Very floral and earthy, with hemp, dandelion, and a bit of tropical melon.

T - Actually less potent than the scent. First grassy, spicy, hop flavors. Then a wave of malt sweetness followed by a touch of tropical melon and citrus flavors. The finish is fairly dry and bitter.

M - A very lively carbonation lifts up a medium, semi-creamy body.

O - While there is nothing exceptional about this beer, there is also nothing at all outputting about it either. It seems content not to swing for the fences, but still succeeds overall. It is an enjoyable sumertime IPA to have while camping, fishing, or, as the name suggests, watching a baseball game.
