look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: very light golden orange, a little slow rising carbonation, two fingers of sea foam head.
S: a cross with an ipa and honey, light and piney, but also like better eastern european lagers
T: less ipa like, actually fairly lagerlike, fairly watery and light, a hair grassy
M: very little felt carbonation, on the dry side
O: not the best ipa, but okay. definitely not up to us standards

First beer from Muifel brewery for me. I wish this beer was more like a real USA (or CA) IPA because the brewery is located 15 minutes from where I live :-)

The smell is pilsner-like, with a bitter aftertaste which shows little signs of the Amarillo, Columbus and Cascade hops that sounded so promising.

The USA_IPA tastes more like a hoppy lager than an American IPA. Like many Dutch versions (or attempts) of an IPA this beer is too light, and lacking in the hop department. I'd like to see a much bolder attempt than this safe (for the Dutch market) brew.

The 7% abv is well hidden in the taste, After only a couple of sips I could have easily taken this for a 5%-er.

Not a bad drink by any means, but to call it a USA_IPA might give a beer novice the wrong impression when it comes to this relatively unknown beer style (in the Netherlands of course).

Overall mediocre.
