2.48/5  rDev -27.7%

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a smallish frothy white head that goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet melon with some grassy, fruity, spicy floral hops.

The flavor is vegetal malts with some charry bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and watery. As it warms, it's not as bad, but any decent hop flavors (fruits, spicy florals) trying to peek through get washed out by the watery body.

Overall, after an interesting pour, a bit of a disappointment. It's very watery and not very appealing flavor-wise.

2.38/5  rDev -30.6%

What an underwhelming beer. Breckenridge makes some good stuff like their oatmeal stout, but this one just doesn't hold up.

Looks impressive enough, standard orange and brown hue you would expect in an ipa. Maybe a little darker in appearance than standard.

Nothing comes across aroma wise. Taste is massively disappointing. They say on the label it is a hoppy homage to something, but there is no discernable hop profile.

It at least isn't thin and punishing throughout the bottle. Disappointing.
