3.78/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 12oz. brown bottle; no "bottled on" or "best before" warning; no ABV %; purchased as part of a ten beer "Summer Brews" sampler pack from Cost Plus for $7.99; dig the label -- "Life is Uncertain, Don't Sip!".
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange-hued brown; fat, batter-like head; a good d-cup's worth of lace; very good head retention.
Aroma: Robustly of pine, grapefruit and sweet, caramel malt; a tad spicy to boot.
Taste: Surprisingly unlike its nose; dry, biscuity malts upfront; firm, assertive hop bitterness in the finish; not sweet in the least; piney, earthy hop flavors; hints of lemon peel and grapefruit; medium bodied with a smooth, almost oily, mouthfeel.
Notes: Not a top tier IPA, but well worth a drink.
Serving type: bottle

Pours a clear gold with a big, foamy, white head that dropped to a cover...semi sticky lace
Smells of pale malts with with hints of dry pine and red grapefruit..For some reason I'm also getting notes of gear oil!
Tastes of pale malts with a hint of used grain. Piney, citrusy hop flavors. Not all that bitter. Also getting gear oil on the finish. Oddest taste I've EVER experienced in a beer!
Mouthfeel: Just barely medium-bodied, slight carbonation.
I've had much more appealing IPA's but this is still just ok if not great in my opinion.

Great hoppy IPA, the pint was that was clear gold....tasted similar to DFH 60 min. Not exactly like it tho. Had total of three pints and couldn't find a problem with any of them. Also the head lasted most of the way down.. Went great with the fish and chips. A Solid I.P.A. one of my favorites.
