4 test batches to get to this? completely forgetable IPA. Just because certain flavors work in one beer, why would the brewer think they would work in another beer? I'm referring to the butterscotch and toffee that work so well in the exceptional RIPA, that are very misplaced here.

Average color, pale orange. Dull. Smells floral hops, caramel malts. Taste too much caramel malt with butterscotch, not enough hops and or bitterness combine to make a below average boring beer. I could have done this review with one word, lousy. Waste of money.

Picked this up at my local HEB to try something new. On first taste the beer was your average IPA, upon further consumption the beer was very dry. I poured into a proper glass to see the color and get the aroma.... The color was average but the smell was disturbing. Would not buy again. Too many others to try.

A - Poured out a clear, fairly dark amber color with a two-finger head of off-white foam. It left thin rings of sticky lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus and pine with touches of grapefruit.

T - Wow, it was a like an off English IPA. Very soapy and astringent. Some nice pine and caramel flavors are buried underneath the soapy taste.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This didn't work at all for me. Too soapy and astringent.

A - Apple cider-like in color with an okay eggshell white head. Slightly hazy and deposits good lace.

S - Fairly aromatic but with cascade, centennial and citra dry hopping I was hoping for something more pungent. The hops are sticky and have subtle earth tones as well as a residual sweetness in the background. Nothing too crazy.

T - A little on the bland side for me, the hops are bursting through with flavor nor is the malt backbone too strong. A light citrus flavor from the hops is noticeable and have an aftertaste of lemon, grass and alpha acids. Too light in flavor for me IMO.

M/O - Medium to light body just under carbonated to me. The palate is left semi-dry but cleanses pretty easily. Nothing to warrant another bottle being opened. Kind of disappointed because of the hop combination used in this one. Needs to be a little bolder in flavor for me.
