3.55/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy orange with a soapy off-white head. Like an average American IPA looks.

Aroma: Sweet candy-like hops. Caramel malt. Smells like a good balance.

Taste: There's some good malt flavor in there but it's overpowered by a sweet hop/wet dog flavor. That makes it sound much worse than it is but it's the only way I can think to describe it. The malts and hops are very well balanced. There is some decent bitterness in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Nice and drinkable. Lighter side of medium bodied.

Final Thoughts: This one left something to be desired. It's lacking some bitterness and good hop flavor. Instead of pine or citrus you just have sweet hops with nothing particularly pleasing about them. Basically this is a good beer but a not so good IPA.

3.36/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

In a bottle poured into a pint glass.
A-Golden hue
S-not much hop aroma there, some slight floral hints and a little bit of citrus on the nose.
T-well-balanced bitterness, not as hoppy as I'd like but still not bad. The malt backbone comes through more than expected, spice and pine resin are the most notable flavors.
M-full and thick, malty creaminess

Not a bad beer by this brewery. It's definitely not one I would yearn over, but nonetheless it is a rather good IPA.
