3.28/5  rDev -17.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

On-tap at the brewery.

A: Clear copper body, thin off-white head. Weak retention and lacing. Meh.

S: Sweet caramel/toffee malt, a hint of butterscotch, and some piney hops. Enjoyable, but not what I'm looking for in an IPA.

T: Follows the nose - sweet, sticky, and ultimately resinous and bitter. All good flavors, but out of proportion for the style.

M: Light-to-medium body with carbonation that's prickly at first, creamy at the end. Pretty intense, and helpful in countering the sweetness.

O: Far too many specialty malts for my taste in an IPA, and nowhere near enough late-addition hops to give the aroma some life. I could see this being an approachable, gateway hoppy beer for customers new to the style, so perhaps it makes sense for this particular brewery, but it just wasn't my kind of IPA.

Cheers!

a - poured a two-fingers thick off-white head into a shaker pint glass that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a bright golden-amber color.
s - floral hops dominate.
t - very balanced IPA between the hops and malt.
m - medium.
o - very drinkable and balanced IPA though you will get your hop fix.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

32 ounce growler poured into Westbrook Brewing tulip glass

A - clear deep amber pour with a one finger foamy head world class retention and world class lacing. Constant stream of bubbles rising from bottom of glass

S - if this beer has a weakness, it is the nose. Just not much there. Hints of pine and floral, not much else.

T - very hop forward. Piney hop bitterness. Malt is sort of roasted. Very pleasing taste.

M - medium thickness with a small aftertaste

O - excellent offering. Looking forward to trying more beer from this Birmingham, Alabama based brewery.
