3.14/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours copper gold, clear with a small, white finger high head. Leaves a singular ring of lacing and some clumps as you drink. Average retention at best.

Honey bread, somewhat grainy with a overarching grassy hop profile, some danker pine and subtle dried tropical fruits.

Bready with lots of cereal grains. House yeast is phenolic adding clove and some banana bread with some red fruit esters. Grassy hops play catch up with a lagging pine. When cold, the finish is very grainy and a touch metallic. Medium/light bitterness brings grainy dryness.

Medium body with average carbonation. Unremarkable with light bitterness, well hidden alcohol and somewhat drying.

Hops need to be really kicked up to call this an IPA, it's a drinkable pale with a Belgian-esque house yeast that could either indicate complexity or sloppiness but it adds some much needed activity to this one. Not a bad beer at all, just not up to par on the style.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

From notes 3/13. 12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. 'Dry hopped with cascade for an awesome hop experience' on neck of bottle.

Pours a light copper with a thin layer of off white foam, light retention with fair to decent lace. A bit undercarbonated like many of thier brews and perhaps aimed at consumption direct from the bottle. Brewed and bottled, I believe, at a location other than the small brewery/tasting room here.

Nice citric hop aroma initially or after a good spin, yet less so when the beer glasses over given the light carbonation. it's a constant battle to bring forth the aroma, yet doing so only makes it even more difficult as the carbonation diminishes further. Pleasant overall though a bit reaching, yet nothing to deter.

Hint of caramel on the taste along with a neutral grain character, light sweetness on the finish accompanied by a light though not quite faint bitterness. Feel is smooth for an IPA given the light bitterness. Hop aroma is enhanced with warming but still subtle.

In the end this beer drinks like a Pale Ale. A Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with a bit less caramel and a bit less Cascade as well. An easy drinking warm climate Pale Ale.

Note: 6.0% on label....
