3.56/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a translucent, slightly yeasty/dirty looking pale amber color with a short lasting finger high cap of rocky white foam that leaves behind a sticky coating of lacing on the glass.

S - Sweet maltose combined with tangerines and oranges, touches of caramel, a bit of yeastiness, mild hop bitterness. I don't see a date on the bottle, but the aroma indicates there is probably at least a couple of months of age on this bottle.

T - Malty sweetness at the base with the same citrusy mix of tangerines and oranges taking the lead in the flavor profile. Mid level hop bitterness - clean but without much punch. A touch of booziness.

M - Lightish medium body with a lighter carbonation level. An earthy hop bitterness that is bit on the dull side persists thru the finish. Malty, worty start up front clashes with the bitterness.

O - To be fair, this doesn't seem to be the freshest bottle, but I have no date code to confirm or deny this. Pretty blah for an IPA with dull hops and a heavy malt presence that overwhelms a bit and clashes at times with the hops that are there. I would try this again in hopes of getting a fresh bottle, but won't go out of my way either.

3.58/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

No head but good lacing on a clear golden with a copper hue body. Aroma of biscuit, resin, tangerine citrus and caramel. Flavor follows with more pine resin, tart citrus, caramel. medium body and moderate carbonation. Simple, a little too tangy, not all that bad but not very memorable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Bottle courtesy of thebeerprophet. Perfect one finger white head with a nice pale golden color to the body. Uniform head that held for almost a minute; lacing is okay. Aroma is grapefruit, kumquat, and tangy unripened peach. Taste is boldly hopped, but the use of simcoe/cascade/crystal reminds me of citra and willamette. Slightly bitter, but with that nice unripened peach flavor as well. Mouthfeel is a tad watery.
