2.63/5  rDev +10.5%

Pours a clear straw gold with a one finger bright white head that fades slowly into a nice cap with moderate lacing.

Aroma was very weak, slight citrus and a very slight hint of floral hops.

Taste starts slightly sweet and then quickly turns bitter, very similar top a nice ripe sweet grapefruit. Couldn't taste the hops.

Mouth fell was light body moderate carbonation, smooth with a very bitter after taste.

Over all not an impressive IPA, lacks the crispness and hop flavor that you expect with an IPA.

Shared by sgsmfdoom who got it from someone that received this in a beer club pack recently.. no clear dating on bottle

A- Pours a very nice light golden/straw color. Extremely clear and clean looking. About an inch head sits atop the beer that is very white and really coats the glass well as it settles...

S- Almost no hops. Very light aroma overall and I don't get a single hop characteristic one would find in any beer let alone an IPA. The most aroma comes from a sweetness that lends itself towards DMS.

T/M- Sweet as soon as it hits the tongue, then a harsh bitterness follows with no flavor from the hops to back it up. There really isn't much too this beer that is pleasing. I will say the bitterness level is spot on for a nice East Coast IPA, but without anything else, it still misses the mark quite a bit. Light body, fairly conservative carbonation.. meh

O- sgsmfdoom said it best - "I just don't need a full glass of this". It is overall a very lackluster beer, especially for an IPA. It claims its dry hopped with 3 different varietals, but there was nothing there. I can't get behind this at all and would only give another go if I knew it was extremely fresh...
