3.57/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed amber color with a two finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a fair level of retention, fading over time to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a grapefruit and pine hop smell mixed with other hints of a bready aroma. Rounding out this mix of hop and malt is a little bit of a sweeter citrus smell, helping to balance the aroma nicely.

Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat drier and moderately hopped taste which consists of a light doughy and crackery malt mix combined with some hop flavors of a pine and grapefruit. As the taste advances more hop of pine comes to the tongue along with a coming of some herbal and light floral hop. The grapefruit all the while fades but is replaced in two fold by the herbal and floral hop tastes. With a little bit of a fruit sweetened taste the developed in the middle of the taste fading once the taste comes more to the end, one is left with a rather dry and somewhat more dankly hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin and light with a carbonation level that is rather high for a 6 % IPA. The thinner body and higher carbonation are actually rather nice for the drier but more dankly hopped tastes of the brew and create a nice crisp feel overall.

Overall – Not a bad IPA overall. It is on the drier and crisper side with a little bit of a more dank hop profile overall. A good one to try. (1,562 characters)

The artwork is awesome, the idea is awesome, the beer is ok.
Light and missing something untouchable to make it a viable choice on a good line of taps.
Crooked Fence does a much better Porter in my opinion. (206 characters)

Clear pale amber with three fingers of off white long lasting head. Makes very impressive lacing.
Smell is some pine and a touch of sweet malts.
Taste is up front pine bitterness with a typical amount of malt for the style.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with minimal carbonation.
Overall a tasty IPA. Be advised that the last pour will dump a lot of particulates some hold back the last bit if you like a clear appearance in your beer.
My can had 6% abv. and 65 IBUs on the label. (481 characters)
