3.53/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a reddish caramel brown color…it’s a nice dark color, but somewhat transparent, I do see a few bubbles in the middle…head is a mixture of big and little bubbles, creating a thin layer that covers the top…it does liven up a bit with a couple of swirls, but settles rather quickly…(3.5/5)

Smell: First thing I get is an earthy yeast aroma, somewhat musky and woodsy…a very balanced IPA, I’m getting a nice mix of hops and malts here…things are very earthy & woodsy with touches of caramel, mild sweetness (honey maybe) and pale malts…it’s got kind of a syrupy fruit cocktail thing happening here too, but it’s no where near as strong as all the earthy tones…not bad…(3.5/5)

Taste: Hmmm…starts very earthy, with tons of woodsy/earthy bitterness, yeast and caramel hitting my tongue first…it’s very balanced I have to say…there’s a peachy type fruit sweetness playing a background role keeping the musky notes in check…malts are on the pale side for sure and it has a bit of noticeable cascade hops bite that shows late…(3.5/5)

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with medium to full carbonation…fluffs up into a cloud of earthy/woodsy bitterness and caramel/pale malts…easy drinking, smooth and finishes crisply…there is a woodsy bitterness that gently lingers in the after taste…(3.75/5)

Overall: While this isn’t my typical style of IPA, this is very drinkable…usually I get sick of all the earthy/woodsy/musky hops and yeast strains, but it seems they’ve mixed things to just the right proportions for my taste buds…with it’s relatively low ABV, only 5.5%, this is a brew that works well with having to socialize, make somewhat critical life decisions or just walking the disc golf course…if hoppy citrus bombs are not your style, than this one may be right up your alley…it’s not gonna blow your mind, but it’s easy to recommend and is a brew worthy of a six pack pick up…(3.5/5)
