look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bought a six pack of cans at the brewery.

citrus notes with good golden color

IBU is probably around 60

light mouthfeel

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 -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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
