2.53/5  rDev -15.4%
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.

Beer is a gold/straw color and has a finger depth of fizzy head. The head diminished relatively fast with very little lacing. Sweet aroma with hints of fruit and alcohol. More so as the beer warms a bit. Brief fruit notes in the taste…again with an alcohol feel. Very light...and relatively smooth...with no real after taste...whatever is there fades very quickly. Not much of a hop character...nor really a malt...but not a balanced feel either. Dunno

bottle into mug

A- pours a medium sized bubbly head that dissolves into a small amount of bubbles on top with moderate lacing. Clear amber color

S- not much smell, malt and toffee

T- Malt, toffee, a little bitter, not much hops or balance

M- light bodied

O- Not an expensive beer, fine for the price if you want to drink a bunch of beers and want something "craft-y" withouth paying much

Bottle into nonic pint.

Pretty average looking ipa.... Orangey colored body. White head. Some spotty lacing. The head settled into a thin ring in a rather quick fashion.

Smells of biscuity malt with a dry toast note and some herbal/floral hops. This is the only out of 5 beers from this brewery that I've tried in which I could actually genuinely smell and taste hops! Hooray!
The hops aren't done poorly, but rather I find they are done minimally. Very little bitterness. Slight chalkiness on the finish.

Body is medium-light with decent carbonation.

Overall-- this is a lackluster ipa. Not one I will buy or drink again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - pours a medium yellow with a small off white head.

S - mostly sweet malts. Barely any hops detected.

T - more sweet with barley any hop flavor. Not much bitterness either. Pretty sad shape for an IPA.

M - medium-low

D - low

Overall a fairly poor IPA that lacks any real characteristics of being an IPA. Fail.
