2.03/5  rDev -40.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

Pours out a murky apricot. Very little head. Aroma is quite faint for an IPA. Some citrus in the nose, but wow, really faint. Mint? Don't get any. Flavor is just muddy. Muddy bitterness. Hop flavor is the opposite of bright (muddy again??). Just a weird, flat bitterness. Fairly sweet up front, but dries up in the back. Mouthfeel is severely lacking in carbonation. A bit slick and fluffy at the same time. Kind of numbs my tongue. Weird. This reminds me of someone's mediocre attempt at homebrew. No Label through and through.

3.5/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with a yellowish stained head a finger strong that holds well. A full wall of lace sticks to the glass.

The smell is quite herbal with hops contrasted by a caramel grain backing. A bit of solvent alcohol is also noted. No real mint aspect protrudes beyond the typical herbal component of the hops.

The taste is quite bitter. Some herbal and sulfuric character blends in with a carbonic bite. Some neutral solvent alvohol is quite apparent with an added tannic bitterness that is bitey and drying on the tongue.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is quite bitter almost to fault with very warming alcohol. I dont get much mint flavor but its more like an added/accenting bitterness. Was cool to say I tried it but I doubt this is something I would revisit.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

A: pours with a large head and a thick honey yellow color. A to of visible carbonation and lacing.
S: not really mint but as others have pointed out there is some spearmint and yeast. Nothing too potent.
T: different is what they drove for and warmed to be what they got. Some mintish and slight lemon in there. A kind of flavor mix between an unfiltered wheat and normal IPA...odd
M: heavier than it should be with a sour back end that lingers unpleasantly.
O: different is all I can say about this one. Not worth anything other than a flight glass unfortunately.

Serving type: on-tap
