3.2/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a 12oz Pint glass.
A- Pours a nice amber with a half finger of head. Decent retention.
S- Slightly grassy, somewhat herbal...there's a little bit of depth here but not crazy. Definitely some grassy scents coming through.
T- Decent carbonation, slight bittering from the hops, but not near what I expected. Definitely some light grassy, herbal, and citrus flavors, but the herbal and grassy notes take the front seat. Not much on the malt end. It's drinkable, I'll give it that, but there is not too much capturing my taste buds here. Slightly oily flavoring.
M- actually Mouthfeel might have been this beer's best point for me. It has a good mix of carbonation and body. It's drinkable for sure. Leaves a slightly dry finish.
O- It's pretty mild for a Green "Monsta". It's not bad but there are so many American IPA's to choose from that I won't reach for it. It was decent.

Best by 2/28/14.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn flute.
a: Clear dark amber with a finger thick white head which receded fairly quickly to sudsy surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t: Pine hops forward over medium malt base, bitter and at first slightly metallic aftertaste.
m; Light to moderate.
o: An ok stronger-than-average IPA, probably great at a Red Sox game in the summer. So I'm drinking it in the wrong season. But I like to change it up. I already had a malty winter beer earlier, and plan to have a stout later. This one does not seem to have a lot of flavor competing with the hop bite, but it is refreshing.
