3.55/5 rDev +3.2%
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.
Serving type: bottle
