look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Had at Snapper's on St. Pete Beach. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a pilsner glass.

A: Hazy orange gold, with a thin white head and a few bubbles of carbonation.

S: Not a huge nose on this. Significant bready malt over citrus and a slight pine hop aroma.

T: Follows the nose, and overall not as hop-forward as should be expected from an IPA. Citrus, grapefruit rind, and mild pine over a smooth bready malt. Moderate bitterness in the hang.

M: Fairly light body, decent carbonation sensation, and only a mild alcohol presence.

O: I don't find anything particularly objectionable here, but it certainly does nothing to excite me or make me want to have another one. A very pedestrian attempt at an IPA - perhaps more suited to an APA, but even then I would expect a better hop bouquet.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Light gold color with a thick, white, long-lasting head with tiny streams of bubbles holding it up from underneath.

Nose has light hoppiness, but not incredibly strong. Flavor is a watered down hop without a lot of bitterness. Kind of an IPA for those not familiar with the style. Nothing overpowering, but with a little slick mouth feel.

Boring, but not offensive, and better than most beers I have found where I am staying in Florida.
