3.46/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz pour into a Pilsner glass at Otter Creek.
A - good looking. Possibly unfiltered, very dark orange with very little head. Foam recedes quickly. leaving a mostly opaque brew that's thinly yellow and thickly red.
S - a little hard to tell in the unusual glassware, but I get a very basic hop smell here. I'm not trained enough to pick out individual types, but it's not overwhelming in any way.
T - unfortunately, there's a big chemical profile, which I assume is attributable to the type of hop used. Artificial bitterness and sweetness on the front of the taste, leading into a bitter maltiness at the back.
M - decent enough, but still totally underwhelming. 6% doesn't really do anything in the mouth, and the IBUs (70ish) get lost in the taste, which unfortunately lingers for a little longer than it should.
O - this IPA is not one that I would get again.

3.68/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a cloudy gold color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains Earthy hops, caramelized malts and some hops.
T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid EIPA to drink for a while.

3.11/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
A: Murky oxidized orange is dense in clarity with a light tan crowning. Carbonation appears strong pacing up along the inner glass walls while visible signs of the unfilitered nature clearly stands out with a suspension of macro-solids. Retention is moderate slipping to a creamy covering while lacing is speckled and spacious.
S: Aroma was sweet and lemony at first upon the pour, however while in the glass it struggled to show any signs of hoppiness and was very weak aromatic wise making this hard to envision as an ipa. Small toasted bread sweetness rounds things out.
T: The flavor showed an increased awareness of hops thankfully, piney notes with some sweet toasted grains stood out turning to a semi-dry lemon finish. Grapefruit toasted bread, flowery hops, moderate in strength but does seem to linger and get a bit stronger towards the finish.
M: Decent crispness, frothy and creamy on the hold, dry with a rough flowery edgeiness.
O: Overall an slightly above average experience, the hop level is moderate, though the complexity lacks a bit. I did find this an bit uneventful upfront but warmed up to it by finish with some increased hop awareness coming through.
