2.13/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Nevada continues its dominance of the worst ipa's made in the states. A little bit darker of a yellow, this one doesn't look particularly inspired, but it has a nice head for being an ipa and being poured into a 'not red solo cup'. Aroma, dishwater bitterness, nothing really nice in terms of hoppiness.

Same dishwater bitterness on the taste tip, just really lacks the hopping or caramel quality you'd want, almost think this is made without all malt given the sweetness coming from it at the same time. Cheap, that's the only reason this gets a 2.5 overall instead of a 2.0.

In the worst producing IPA state around, this is one of the worst of the worst.

Serving type: on-tap

Having tried this brewery back around the turn of the century, and feeling ripped off on the free beer I got while playing cards, I was inspired by my friend Dan to stop by there again on a recent trip. I paid $1.75 for a large glass of this beer, which quite frankly, sucked. Golden colored with a white head. Light hop aromas and flavors, with some sweet malt. Very unimpressive; the only upside was that my wife made enough money playing slots to pay for the beer.

Served on-draught into a pilsner glass at Ellis Island. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger beige colour head of okay thickness, cream, and retention. Body colour is a clear pale yellow-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Tropical hops, clean malts, and crisp barley. A mild strength aroma.

T: Tropical floral and vague fruit hops over a clean malt body. Simple but surprisingly balanced. I like it. Pleasant and enjoyable. Clean, crisp, and tasty.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Nice presence and refreshing body. Not too light or too heavy. Good thickness.

Dr: Drinkable and affordable at $2.00. I'd get it again. A pleasant surprise from Ellis Island. That said, it's nothing to write home about.

C+
