look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Bottle from the brewery, 12oz into a tulip. Listed at 5.9% ABV.

Looks quite different from what others have described here, mine poured a deep amber-brown, with an ultra-persistent offwhite head. Super creamy and sheets of lacing. Nose has some hop character, and a weird mineral/yeast thing going on. Some bread underneath. Not at all inviting for a pale. Taste has some grassy/green hop notes, and again a weird bready/yeasty and mineral quality to it that I can't get past. Drying and moderately bitter finish. Medium full feel, medium carbonation. Not at all a fan - not sure if something went wrong with the bottling or the brew here.

3.01/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Huge amounts of head, grew impatient and spooned most of it out of the glass to pour the remainder into the pint glass. The Beer is a cloudy caramel color with a sweet, simple smell. Certainly tastes like an IPA, with two notes: simple hops and floral/nectar. I keep thinking it tastes like the flower on the label.

The mouth feel is very good, creamy balanced, not to bitter or alkaline.

Drinkable and hoppy, I would want this beer with cookout food, particularly sausages, brats, and spicy meats.

3.04/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

I poured a finger and 1/2 of off-white head over a beer with a nice complex looking body. Held up to the light, the coloration on this beer is interesting, a variety of yellow-orange to burnt orange colors come through. Lacing tries to cling to the glass.

I smell caramelized malt and weak, generic hops.

The front end is a light malt sweetness. The hops come in rather quickly, and it's a generic pine flavor. A little earthy tone also noted.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Carbonation a little on the weak side, but not quite flat. It has a dry, bitter finish.

This beer is interesting in that it looks much better than it is.
