Bomber poured to SN IPA glass

A: a very nice golden orange color, with a thick off white head that leaves spotty lacing.

S: disappointing. Mostly sweet malt, with some pine and faint citrus.

T: see caramel malt, light citrus and pine. Basically like the nose. Lingering bitterness.

M: medium, creamy mouthfeel. Nice crisp carbonation.

O: meh, just ok. Wouldn't buy again. Maybe I got an older bottle? There is no date on the bottle.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The place I purchased this suggested this to me. I don't know if they were just trying to get rid of it or they genuinely liked the beer, but two salespeople mentioned it to me. I am a big hoppy IPA kind of guy. This one was not a bad beer, but based upon the suggestion, and comparison I thought it would be in the same range as Sculpin, to me there was no comparison. Sculpin is a much better beer.

Appearance: Orange almost a bit hazy, very little head, nice color.

Smell: Not as hoppy as I would imagine based upon the 4 C's the bottle claims the brewers put in the beer. Four C's meaning four C named hops, I won't list them here but its on the bottle for reference.

Taste: Not much going on here. Maybe it is a good intro IPA, but my palate has evolved into something that can handle a more aggressive hop profile.

Overall: This is not a bad beer, good intro/gateway IPA, but not all that great.
