This was a slightly below average craft IPA. Tasted kind of heavy, bready, grainy. Strong, straightfoward hop finish but thick and bland to begin with. Dark golden color, also grainy head. Not a lot of unique flavor going on. Still a decent beer but pales in comparison to some beers I've reviewed on this website.

Nice color and smell. A nice orange/brown color. Smells little piney/earthy. Wishing for a more hoppy flavor. Good feeling in mouth. has that good after taste. Drinking it from growler that was filled today. Going to go for 2nds just to be sure. Better safe than sorry.
