3.45/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. can poured into pub glass
(canned on 7/15/13 printed on bottom)

L: amber-orange, clear, nice hea to start with that doesn't last overly long, sticks a bit, doesn't lace

S: hops ... green as mown grass; a slight bit of grain

T: hop salad ... all i taste is bitter hops with an occasional sweetness from the tropical fruit/mango taste

F: solid

O: honestly, about as average as you get with the American hop-salad crowd. i'm sure this brew was all that back in whatever year it came out in, but at 6.5% ABV,it's WAY TOO much for anything other than a couple cans to jack up your palate with all the hops and alcohol. and how does this escape the American IPA label, anyway?

it's just fine if you're looking for a good American IPA. bonus points to Oskar Blues for cooking up one of these that's crystal clear ... i mean, it's glass, man, and that's cool. but in the current craft brew scene here in America, I not only can't say anything about this brew that makes it stand out from the other coney brews, it's simply way too alcoholic for what it's supposed to be. if this is an "American pale ale," then start calling me "Mr. President"

Serving type: can
