look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12-oz bottle into Belgian ale glass

A - 4-finger off-white head over a cloudy body of golden/orange; head sticks around leaving a nice trail of lace

S - floral and citrus

T - floral and citrus notes, wheat bread in the background, nice hop bitterness, bone-dry finish

M - light/medium body, medium/high carbonation

O - It has a good taste, but not remarkable. Also it could use more body.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a reddish amber with a white head that has lots of staying power. Smells of floral and citrus hops nice aroma. Tastes of floral and citrus hops, but a tad watery. Beer is heavily carbonated but is still very drinkable. Overall, an above average beer.

Paid $7.99 for a six-pack; I thought the label had a great old-timey feel to it and it intrigued me enough to try it. This was a good but not great beer. There was enough flavour and bitterness for it to be an assertive IPA, but there was nothing distinct or "signature" about it, like the signature tastes of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA, or Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA. There was a "nice" IPA; made to style and tasty, but it lacked the "X" factor that would have made it stand out on the already overcrowded shelves.

2.53/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Brownish orange in color. Very clear. Pours with about an inch of sudsy head. Mild effervescence present.

Smell: Faint, honey sweet malts and bread. Kind of flat and earthy. Either my senses aren’t getting everything today or there’s just not much there.

Taste: Bitter hits first, with some of the bready malts following up. The bitter hops hits hard to begin and doesn’t really let up, finishing like dark chocolate. There’s a faint trace of metal.

Mouthfeel: Sort of on the thin side, and not much carbonation.

Overall: Drinkable for sure but not really all that memorable. It’s ok but I’ve had too many other great IPAs to give this one a future shot. I actually used one of the six to make beer bread without trying it first … there were probably better options out there for that as well.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Gotta love asking local employees how this stuff is/is selling...gold... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises biscuit and rather light grass. The taste holds notes of orange rind, light lemon rind, grass, and a touch of dried honey. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a pretty sad IPA, one with very little hop presence to speak of and a bland, overly bitter flavoring.

This poured out as a light orange color, there is a decent retention and a really impressive lacing. The beer looks really good. The smell doesn't really give off the hop aroma that I was hoping for. There are some earthy hops and honey on the nose. The taste of this beer is malty, some earthy bitterness. The mouthfeel of beer is nicely carbonated and light to medium bodied. Overall not the best IPA out there.
