3.53/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Draft pour into a nonic glass at Red's Alehouse in North Liberty.

A: Clear, light amber color with less than one finger of diminishing white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Restrained grainy toast and herbaceous/floral hops are underwhelming because the nose must strain to even detect them.

T: Begins barely off-dry, with hearty pale malt and very clean grassy hops aromatics. Transitions are easy and balance reigns throughout the profile. Moderate bitterness in the finish is accented with Simcoe-style dankness.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, slightly acidic and wet on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: Solid but hardly a standout, this limited edition IPA really drinks no differently than Green Flash West Coast IPA.
