3.15/5 rDev -19.8%
Poured into a pint glass from 650ml bottle.
A- clear, light copperish with thin head that rapidly disappears.
S- you know this is going to have some hop attitude. Strong citrus and pine right in your face
T- unfortunately disappointing for me. Started out pleasantly hoppy but got soapy and oddly sweet in the aftertaste.
M- nothing worth complaining about, typical for an IIPA
O- yea like I said, a little off for me. The sweetness of the malt and the hops clashed. Not even close to a drain pour, but not even close to a repeat purchase

3.38/5 rDev -14%
A-Pours a semi-hazed, yet glowing orange color. Head is a very solid wedge of foam. Lacing is rather subtle.
S-The quartet of Amarillo. Centennial, Columbus and Simcoe hops bring about a reasonably potent mixture of hoppiness. It doesn't go much further past citrus in my book. It's also very tangy smelling. Dried grain and bread malt.
T-Unfortunately, I get some buttery diacetyl on the finish. Otherwise, I taste candied citrus, sweet grapefruits and an overall tangy hoppiness. Pretty straightforward. A mix of pale and caramel malt.
M-Fuller bodied. Alcohol is noticeable but at 8.5%, it's not bad. Bitterness is pretty standard for the style.
O-This beer really just sinks into the abyss of mediocrity and 'genericness'. It's not bad! It's not special, either.
