look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pale gold body, good clarity, numerous carbonation streams, topped by a huge ball of eggshell white foam. Spotty lace.

Very mild aroma, hint of pine, bits of grass, all very fleeting.

Lightly sweet beginning is more thin coat than foundation. Building bitterness, but no other tastes. Peaks at the swallow and slow fade.

Ok mouthfeel.

One of the most uninteresting IPAs I've had in awhile, and that is the best I can say. Pass.

Was in Montrose, PA, the other day and saw this at the beer distributor. Asked the fellow behind the counter what he thought of it. "It's okay," he said. "Just okay?," I asked back. "Yeah."

He was right. I wanted to like it -- and it's certainly drinkable -- but it's not a particularly good IPA. The bottles I had were a bit over-carbonated, the flavor was off-kilter. It was...

Okay.

I probably wouldn't buy it again.

First had: on tap at Rodano's, Wilkes-Barre, PA

Well, it was the only thing on tap I hadn't seen or had before, and it was either "try something new," or belly up to a Guinness, so what the hell.

Golden color with a slight chill haze, but otherwise fairly clear, with a thin cap of white bubbles that soon dissipated almost completely; no lacing. Light aroma, herbal hops, ripe stone fruits, bready malts. Really weak taste for an IPA, with almost no character at all; basically reflected the aroma, light herbal hops soon overtaken with a bready malt sweetness and a light estery fruit quality. Body was light, mouthfeel was thin and unadventurous, but on the plus side it wasn't harsh at all, so it went down pretty easy. Overall an easy drinker, but not something I'd reach for again unless I had to. Should've gone for the Guinness.
