3.2/5 rDev -16.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance 3.5: Pours out a deep golden and is opaque. OK head (1/2") and OK lacing.
Smell 3.5: Nice nose on this brew. Deep, delicious mix of barley and hops with a piquant front bouquet of very alkaline hops.
Taste 3.00: Front is smooth, with a big hit of light sweetness. Middle is where the barley and hops hit you and it is a pleasing balance. Finish is where the wheels start to come off, as there is far too much sweetness present here and then the big problem raises its ugly head in the aftertaste: metal. Yes, the tail-end of the finish and the majority of the aftertaste has a very unpleasant metallic tang. Is this how lead tastes? Dear lord, I hope not.
Mouthfeel 3.25: Standard level of carbonation which is a good accompaniment for this style.
Overall 3.25: Good IPA, but it falls short of being anything special. There are several levels on which it is exceptional, but the problem present in the taste (i.e. the metallic taste) takes away from its overall enjoyment. There are so many IPAs out there, that this one really falls short and is just slightly above average.
