look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle. bottled on 03/03/14.

A: pretty muddy, a lot of haze on a dark orange body. very frothy slightly off-white head. bubbly. good retention. lots of lacing. don't like this haze though...

S: bright and tropical. a little bit of coconut. not oxidation, but there is a soapy aroma in there. I take that back, this is oxidized. a cardboard blah flavor.

T: not very enjoyable on this front. that cardboard shit flavor becomes more and more prevalent as I keep drinking. grainy. unpleasant.

M: carb is a little low. medium bodied.

D: only a month old and it already turned to complete shit? that's a huge fucking pass from me. reminds me of a homebrew and I mean that in a bad way. really bad. step your shit up clown shoes.

Serving type: bottle

The problem with this beer...it's more of a malt then an IPA. It poured and looked more malty then a pale ale.

Appearance: Nice dark, malty color. (My favorite part of the beer)
Smell: Apricot, figs.
Taste: Malty, hops are weak (to me, i love hoppy beer)
Mouthfeel: Filling
Overall: I would not order this IPA again.

Serving type: on-tap
