3.75/5 rDev -12.2%
A: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Dark khaki on the inside with a golden edge. A nice 1.5-finger head dissipated to a thin film and left little lacing. Semi-hazy in texture.
S: Light aromas of grass, with a malty sweetness to balance it out. It has a "wet" aroma that sets it apart, with notes of dark berries, vanilla bean, grass, and. Touch of flowers.
T: Hoppy up-front, with the malt backbone to carries it through. The swallow is bitter, but it doesn't linger. Notes of sediment, dirt, grass clippings, toasted malts, and oat nut bread dominate.
M: Chewy but mot heavy, with a slightly bitter afterfeel that sits in your jaw.
O: For the style, there really is nothing like it. Those who purchased it thinking it was a standard IPA didn't read carefully enough, and shouldn't hold that against it. An IPL done well is a rare thing, and this is the prime example.

4.16/5 rDev -2.6%
Appearance- color is a bright gold. Carbonation within the beer is invisible, beer pours a moderate amount of white, thin head that settles into spotty lacing.
Smell-Mildly fruity, Resin, grass, faintest yeast.
Taste- Upfront is Resin, mild fruit, (maybe melon?), Slightly citrusy, slightly floral, toasty, yeasty notes.
Mouthfeel Light/ medium body, medium/ high carbonation, crisp, slightly dry in the end.
overall- excellent beer, satisfies on many levels, tasty, refreshing, satisfying, this could easily become a go to for me
