First, let me say that the first time I had this I loved it. This time (maybe it's the batch...or whatever) it's not quite the same.
Don't get me wrong though, it's still a fine IPA!
The look is the only thing not impressive. Although beautifully golden orange, it seems kind of clear with minimal head/lacing. Honnestly, it looks like a weak IPA.
Then there's the taste. Pretty great! Not overpowerfully hoppy, but not toned down either - just enough bite. Also, there's a really nice citrusy-orange-sweetness to it that adds nicely to the bitterness.
The rest...well, is like any other average IPA.
All in all (and let's be honest, this is the only few sentences that really matter), it's a great IPA! Where the appearance lack, the taste makes up for - and for most, that's what's important.
