2.78/5 rDev -19.7%
First had: on tap at Coffee District, Delray Beach, FL
Slightly hazy, amber pour with a small white head that receded to a wispy layer, leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Smell was a bit funky, and not in a saison way, like something was off here; thin and malty, soapy, distant leafy hops. This translated into the taste, unfortunately. It wasn't completely undrinkable, but this was not a very well-done IPA overall. Sweet thinned-out malts, light fruits, dishwater, leafy hops that really didn't provide a freshness or crispness that, in my opinion, makes a good IPA. Light-medium body, and just not very drinkable. Fortunately, this was a taster, because, hmm...

On tap at the brewery. Served in a taster.
Appearance - Clear orange body. Nice white head. Good retention. Nice lacing.
Smell - Mild citrus and pine hop. Diacetyl? Might be.
Taste - Still some diacetyl here, but less. Mild citrus hop. Grainy malt smoothed out by the buttery flavor. Eh.
Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.
Overall - Diacetyl kills this. Maybe it's a bad batch.

I had this on-tap while we were in Key West. Served in a standard pint glass.
Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a layer on top of the pour and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: Some sweet malt with a citrus peel/soapy hop note. I'm getting some warmth from the alcohol as well.
Taste: Soapy hops dominate the flavor with a citrus peel bitterness. Mild fruity notes with a touch of sweet malt and a bunch of hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with very foamy carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: It didn't feel like there was much artistry going on in this beer. The bitterness was super aggressive, but nothing was subtle. The alcohol stuck out a bit too much as well.

Bought a six pack of cans at the brewery.
citrus notes with good golden color
IBU is probably around 60
if you want to try your first IPA this would be a good starting point
IPA lovers: this is a very basic IPA. good to try once but you probably don't need more than one

3.18/5 rDev -8.1%
Poured chilled in ribbed ale glass
A: dark cloudy copper color; good small carb bubble stream; very thick head with good retention
S: grass aroma (hops, obviously), not much else, but not unpleasant
T: grassy IPA, much in the bittering hops; medium malt backbone; medium-range hop flavors (neither high- nor low-tone); one-dimensional; not bad, but missing the complements of esp. finishing hops
O: okay but not a beer I'll return to
