2.95/5  rDev -13.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance : Gorgeous, rich amber color, slightly cloudy. Beautiful 1/2" fine frothy head, normal dissipation, dense, gorgeous lacing all around.

Smell : Subdued hop aroma with a strong malt backbone, nothing impressive.

Taste : Quite bitter, though not offensive

Mouthfeel : Medium-bodied, leaning a little too dense for my taste given the bitterness

Overall : A pretty standard, run-of-the-mill IPA, not very impressive, probably would never have it again - though, as I said, not an offensive brew by any means.

Cheers.

Poured this a touch warm with a smallish to medium size, cream color head that soon settles and some lace. Color is a clear medium honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is hop, butter, spice, resin, wet cardboard, hint of malt. Flavor's a little like nose, tang and hop bitter stand out, some of the flavors clash. Body's ok, carbonation a bit strong. Finish is like flavor, long in the resin. Not all that easy drinking.
