3.43/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12-oz to tulip. 2 months old.

A - Crystal clear medium gold. Decent white head that lasts a few minutes. Minor lacing.

S - Initially upon pouring I swore I smelled skunk. That was gone quickly and replaced by something nice and tropical fruity with a bit of sweet malt with something savory or vegetal behind it, something that smells like dinner, which isn't quite what I want to smell.

T - Barely-there hop bitterness. I'm having trouble pulling out any specific flavors other than a tiny hint of that dinner note from the aroma. It tastes fine but I'm not sure what that taste is.

M - Not quite dry, but ends up there. A bit of a tart feel inside the lips afterwards.

O - This lacked definition and sufficient flavor for me. Something about it is good, and I'd be happy enough to drink it across a session and not think about it, but it isn't memorable enough to make me want to buy it again. I had heard such good things.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled march 18, 2014

bright yellow-orange, clear

Grassy and earthy in the nose along some dank. A bit of citrus. Cat piss.

Taste up front grassy and floral hops. A bit tangy and a good malt balance

medium carbonation, nice subtle bitter aftertaste. Dry and light.

Not exploding with flavors but a nice crisp standard IPA.
