2.9/5  rDev -26.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a pale yellow. Good head/lacing.

Smell is creamy- creme brulee, melons. Honey, honeydew, toffee apple. Quite a bit of ethanol which is disappointing for a beer of only 7% ABV. Little bit of plastic.

Taste is more melons- quite strong, chemical bitterness, iso-hop-py.

Mouthfeel simply has too much chemical bitterness.

Not a good beer. Limited hop aromatics, too much ethanol, too much raw unpleasant hopping on the palate. (433 characters)

Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
I'm movin' to the country, gonna drink me a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops,
Movin' to the country, gonna drink a lot of hops.
Hops come, in a can,
They were put there by a man,
In a factory downtown.
And if I had my little way, I'd drink hops everyday,
Some suckin' bitterness in the shade. (371 characters)

Bottled on 4/16/13.Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lemon yellow color with just a great looking firm one finger head just doesn't dissapate,not a fan of the color but a big fan of the pillow-like head.Big citrusy hops jump out in the nose along with some pine underneath,not much malt presence except for mild toastiness.If you like grapefruit and bitterness this your kinda ipa,I love it,intesnse grapefruit juice flavors and some stickiness to go along with some lighter pine resin,again just a faint drier malt presence.I haven't had an in your face sharp hop bomb in awhile and for me this fits the bill.Excellent...in my opinion. (643 characters)

A: hazy gold, big 2” pure white rocky foam collar that produces ledges of lace.
S: some earthy notes on the nose, citrus, light grass.
T: Some light biscuit. Initial palate has some sweet fruit and then by mid-palate it balances with the hop and it simultaneously dries out and becomes juicy.
F: Very creamy, bone dry and fairly light body for an IPA. Carbonation is very soft, moderately low
O: Refreshing, drinkable, well rounded and well balanced. The level of bitterness is similar to what you would find in a gin and tonic. (534 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big three finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing.

Smell: A floral and earthy hop forward aroma with hints of citrus and grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, and melon. Floral and earthy hops with some hints of grass and pine. Soft pale malt hints of biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Also some honey like sweet hints. A pretty solid smell.

Taste: Like the smell, a juicy and floral hop driven taste with nice notes of citrus and grassy hops. Citrus fruit notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and melon. Floral hop notes along with some earthy notes of grass and pine. Soft bready malt notes of cracker, biscuit, and yeast as well as a little honey sweetness. A pretty nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty solid take on an IPA. Good earthy and citrus hop flavors with a clean smooth body. (1,079 characters)
